Freddy Garcia tossed six shutout innings on Saturday against Boston, allowing six hits, walking one and striking out three. He walked off the mound with an 8-0 lead and is, clearly, in line for the win.

Garcia was 0-2 in four starts with a 6.92 ERA against Boston entering Saturday.

Those numbers are going to improve after Garcia' solid outing.

Garcia kept the Red Sox off the board by keeping them off balance by mixing a mid-80s fastball with effective breaking pitches. Staked to a 6-0 lead, Garcia did the best thing a pitcher can do - keep the Red Sox off base and get the Yankees back to the plate.
