Astros' Luis Garcia tosses 5 2/3 of one-hit ball in Game 6 of ALCS against Red Sox

HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) - Astros rookie Luis Garcia pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-hit ball against the Boston Red Sox with his team holding a 1-0 lead in the sixth at the time of his exit.

Houston extended its lead over Boston 2-0 in the bottom half of the si

This outing was much different than Garcia's last one, when he was charged with five earned runs in just one inning, including a grand slam. Garcia commanded his pitches early against the Red Sox, and his velocity was higher than it's ever been.

Garcia also made Boston hitters whiff on his cutter on 12 out of their 13 swings. He dominated this lineup, reminiscent of Framber Valdez the game before at Fenway.

The Astros scored their runs on a Yordan Alvarez RBI-double in the first inning, then Kyle Tucker's grounder in the sixth.
