Blue Jays' Garcia allows two runs in five innings in last start
Jaime Garcia allowed two runs -- one earned -- in five innings and did not factor into the decision against the Mariners on Wednesday. He surrendered only three hits but issued five walks against three punchouts on the evening. He fell behind 2-0 but the Jays' bats came back to win the game in the late innings. Garcia had been struggling badly in his recent starts prior to this one, so his fantasy owners were happy to see him fare better today. He is 2-2 with a 5.40 ERA in seven starts. He has 35 strikeouts and 18 walks in 35 innings pitched.
Mets' Syndergaard walks four in no decision vs. Rockies
Noah Syndergaard allowed two runs over six innings in a no decision against the Rockies on Sunday. Syndergaard didn't have his best command in this one, as he gave up four walks to go along with six hits. He did strike out five, and outside of a solo homer to Ian Desmond, he was able to keep the Colorado hitters at bay for most of the game. He now has 54 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings, and the ERA lowers to 3.05. He's back on the mound on Saturday when Syndergaard and the Mets travel to Philadelphia.
