Rockies-Cardinals Preview

Jaime Garcia's worst career ERA is against the Colorado Rockies mostly thanks to one disastrous outing at Coors Field, though he also has been poor in two home losses to them. He won't get a victory no matter how well he pitches if the St. Louis Cardinals continue their alarming trend of providing him with no support.
