Lewis and Garcia: Both Pitching in their Place of Strength Tonight

October 20, 2011

Game two of the World Series features a match up of two pitchers who perform the best in this situation. The Rangers’ Colby Lewis has been dominant in the post season and on the road this season while Jaime Garcia of the Cardinals brings his best stuff while toeing the rubber in Busch Stadium. Colby Lewis was 9-5 with a 3.43 ERA and 3.96 Strikeout to Walk Ratio away from Arlington Ballpark this regular season. Check out Lewis’ numbers on the road in the regular season.

Lewis’ career numbers in the playoffs are even better. Lewis is 4-1 with a 2.37 ERA in five post season starts. The Cardinals will counter with the young Lefty, Jaime Garcia, who has been phenomenal at home this season. Garcia only allowed 28 Earned Runs and six Home Runs in St. Louis this season going 9-4 with a 2.55 ERA. Check out Garcia’s great numbers at home this regular season.

If Texas hopes to avoid going down 0-2 they will need a stellar performance form their journeyman hurler. Will the confidence Lewis gained honing his skills for two seasons in Japan produce another much needed postseason victory for Texas? Or will the young Garcia have yet another fantastic start at home and propel the Red Birds to a two game World Series lead?
