Jaime Garcia was spectacular as the St. Louis Cardinals downed the Atlanta Braves 1-0 Friday Night.
Garcia did damage both pitching eight scoreless innings and with an RBI single, one of just two Cardinals hits on the evening.
Garcia improved to 8-8 while striking out 11 to top the 100-strikeout mark for the third time in his career.
The most trouble he faced all night was in the fourth inning when he pitched out of a two-on, no-out situation. He struck out Freddie Freeman and Matt Kemp before Adonis Garcia grounded out.
Garcia’s two-out single in the second drove in Matt Holliday.
Seung Hwan Oh worked the ninth for his ninth save.
