Garcia vs. Vargas
Today will be the first game of the Mariners/Yankees 3 game set. Jayson Vargas will be opposing Freddy Garcia. Freddy Garcia (8-7 3.21 ERA) is starting to bounce back from earlier rough starts,but he now has a wining record. Last start, Garcia pitched 6 2/3 innigs of shutout ball against the Rays, while strikingout seven.
Jason Vargas (6-8 3.94 ERA) is very inconsistent.Vargas was knocked around by the Blue Jays his last time out, giving up five runs on six hits over three innings. The 28-year-old left-hander has surrendered 10 earned runs over his last two starts after allowing only six over his last four outings.
So I think Garcia will win this battle, especially because the Mariners have a 15 game losing streak.
