The native of Bolívar state struck out six Mariners batters, and allowed four hits, gave up one walk and allowed one run, product of a single by Ty France in the sixth inning, in which Venezuelan Luis Torrens scored from second base; that after hanging five consecutive zeros.

In this way, Luis García left an ERA in May of 2.33 in 27 periods of work and five starts in May; with 32 strikeouts and 10 walks, while the opposition hit him for an average of .204; being the lowest for a Venezuelan starter with a minimum of five starts and also for an Astros starter.

For their part, the sidereals regained the advantage in the upper part of the eighth chapter with a single by Yordan Álvarez in which the Cuban Aledmys Díaz scored, which later became the winning race for the visitors, who reached 30 victories in their first 48 games, tying the franchise's second-best mark in that number of challenges (2015 and 2018).

However, Luis García concentrated his third start in the year of at least six innings, six guillotined and two clean lines or less, and ninth in his career. Likewise, he has a record this season of 3-3 with an ERA of 3.14, 51 prescribed, 15 walks, WHIP of 1.07 and the opposition is averaging .204; seventh-lowest batting percentage for a starter in the American League.
