Matt Garza pitched allowed five runs in just 2.2 innings Wednesday against the Reds. He allowed six hits and two walks while striking out two.

Matt Garza will not be making his scheduled start Sunday against the Nationals.
Garza had a 7.67 ERA in August, and the Brewers apparently don't feel comfortable throwing him in a crucial September game. Manager Craig Counsell said that Garza will remain in the rotation, and he's penciled in next for September 12th. Brent Suter will make the start in his place.
Matt Garza took his eighth loss of the season Tuesday. He pitched 3.1 innings against the Cardinals, allowing six runs (three earned) on four hits and five walks while striking out two.
You shouldn't have started Matt Garza, and if you did the result shouldn't surprise you. He now has a 4.77 ERA on the year.
Matt Garza pitched five innings Wednesday against the Giants, allowing one run on five hits while walking two and striking out six.
This is about as good as it gets for Garza, who despite being a weathered veteran rarely pitches beyond five innings in a start. He lowered his ERA to 4.67 after today's performance, but still makes for a high-risk, low-reward streaming option.
Matt Garza allowed eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits in Coors Field Friday. He struck out two and walked two. His record is now 6-7.
This is the expected result for a pitcher of Garza's caliber going into Coors Field. He should not be started in standard mixed leagues.
