|Freddy Garcia gives Braves best effort |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/8/13) The Braves gave the ball to Freddy Garcia Monday night in a must-win situation in Game 4 of the National League Division Series in Los Angeles. Garcia gave Atlanta all he had, but still the Braves were eliminated by the Dodgers.
Garcia took a no-decision as he allowed two earned runs on eight hits and two walks over six strong innings, throwing 101 pitches. David Carpenter gave up the lead in the eighth inning when he allowed a two-run homer to Juan Uribe. Garcia struck out six and allowed two HRs to Carl Crawford, including in the first at-bat of the game for the Dodgers.
The 37-year-old Garcia, who spent a decent portion of the season with Baltimore, went 1-2 over six appearances and three starts down the stretch of the regular season for the Braves with a 1.65 ERA. There is no telling where or if he'll surface in the 2014 season.
