Luis Garcia blows save, takes loss on Saturday

Cardinals reliever Luis Garcia served up a go-ahead, two-run home run to Ian Happ in the top of the ninth inning in a 6-5 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

Closer Giovanny Gallegos pitched on Friday, so he was unavailable on Saturday as the Cardinals have no need to overwork their best reliever having already clinched a playoff spot. Instead, it was Luis Garcia who got the call, having also picked up a save on Thursday. However, with the Cubs down to their final out, Ian Happ connected for a game-winning home run to propel the Cubs to victory.
