He uncorked five wild pitches – becoming the first major league pitcher to do that since Philadelphia’s Ken Howell on April 5, 1989.
Dating to 1918, the five wild pitches in a game ties for fourth most by one pitcher. The amazing thing is Garcia threw four wild pitches all last season – in 146 2/3 innings. He threw four in all of 2010 in 157 innings.
Just for the record, Ken Howell could have done the uncorking in 1989 with the Orioles.
