Freddy Garcia Throws Six Shutout Innings

by @ 11:52 pm. Filed under 2011 Yankees

Freddy Garcia improved 12-8 on the season with a really nice start in the Yankees 9-1 blowout win over the Red Sox.  The Yankees are in the playoffs, but they could still influence how the playoff picture ends up because they finish up against the Red Sox and Rays.  This game was the perfect example as the Red Sox continue their historic collapse.

Garcia gave up six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in six shutout innings.  Rookie George Kontos  threw a shutout ninth inning and he struck out two in the frame.

Rookie Jesus Montero had a huge day at the plate.  He went three for four with a home run, four RBIs and two runs.  Derek Jeter had just one hit but it was a three run home run in the second inning.

Now it’s time to think about Yankees playoff tickets.  That gave the Yankees win number 96.  In order to win 100, they’d have to go 4-1 the rest of the way.  With the Yankees getting ready for the playoffs and their opponents fighting for a playoff spot I don’t see that happening but it would be cool if he forced the Red Sox and Ray’s hands.
