Analysis: Garcia drew boos from the 34,942 fans after Brandon Phillips easily swiped third base after it appeared Garcia didn't bother to look him back.
Sep. 9 12:17 PM PT1:17 PM MT2:17 PM CT3:17 PM ET15:17 ET19:17 GMT3:17 12:17 PM MST2:17 PM EST2:47 PM VEN23:17 UAE2:17 PM CT-Garcia gave up five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings - his third shortest outing of the season - in the Cardinals' 12-5 loss to the Brewers on Thursday.
Analysis: Garcia struggled for the fourth time in his last five starts, losing a career-high fourth straight decision. ''As he came out in the first I thought it was going to be one of those days where we were going to see some really good balls on the ground,'' Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. ''It seemed like some elevated balls got him. He had a good sinker. It just ended up being a rough one.''

Analysis: Garcia was saddled with a third loss in as many starts despite pitching a bit better. He had a 9.00 ERA in his previous three outings. He makes his next start Thursday against a Brewers team he has gone 2-1 with a 1.23 ERA in three starts this season. He has a 0.84 ERA in four starts versus Milwaukee at Busch Stadium since the start of last season.

Analysis: Nineteen of his 24 outs were ground balls or strikeouts. The lefty has given up two runs in his last 16 innings. ''When I'm pitching my goal is to get quick outs and to get them to hit the ball on the ground and I was able to do that today,'' Garcia said.
