4/10 Garza needs better mix
Matt Garza shouldered the blame for Saturday’s 6-0 loss to the Brewers, saying he needed to make some changes.
“We didn’t score any runs, so I don’t think you can lay the finger entirely on him,” Mike Quade said Sunday.
Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder hit three doubles off Garza, and in each instance, Garza was ahead, 0-2, in the count.
“You know when you’ve got a guy 0-2, even a guy like Fielder, he’s in a world of trouble,” Quade said. “I just want to see him come out and be better next time.”
Garza said he’s a “fastball guy” and the majority of the Brewers’ eight hits came on fastballs.
“That’s uncalled for,” he said. “That’s not my style, that’s not who I am, and that’s something that’s going to change.”
Quade, though, said he’d like to see Garza improve his soft game. The right-hander’s next start is Friday in Colorado. We’ll see.
