Freddy Garcia got out of the first inning, but otherwise, he didn’t give the Yankees much more of a chance to win than Bartolo Colon gave them last night. In his first start since July 3, Garcia allowed a season-high six runs — five earned — in a 7-1 loss to the Blue Jays. Garcia had allowed a total of seven earned runs in his last five starts before the break, but he wasn’t sharp tonight. A two-run fourth and three-run fifth made all the difference as the Yankees got only one run on four hits against Toronto starter Brandon Morrow.
