The extra-inning rule of placing a runner on second base implemented in 2020 did not benefit Garcia Friday, as his second pitch of the tenth went over the wall in Nationals Park. It was Garcia's second loss of the year and only his third earned run of 2021. He has four saves and owns a 2.19 ERA.

Through six appearances, Garcia has a 1.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, five strikeouts, and a 1-1 record with one save over 6 1/3 innings.
