Jon Garland on his performance yesterday:

[Scott Merkin]

"I've been trying to work on throwing more changeups to righties during Spring Training. It's something I've wanted to try, and it is a perfect opportunity to do so. In the regular season, I'm not throwing that pitch in that situation to lead him off -- especially when he hasn't seen anything and I'm not slowing down anything. It's a learning experience. But I felt good, felt great."
