Too bad for them, the bullpen didn't fare so well. The Milwaukee Brewers rallied late and Jonathan Lucroy's home run in the 10th inning gave them a 4-3 win.
Garcia pitched seven innings of shutout ball, working around seven hits and two walks.
"As Jaime pitched as well as he did, it's tough to see it end that way," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said.
The Brewers had gone a team-record 32 innings without scoring before Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer off reliever Trevor Rosenthal in the eighth that made it 3-2.
Braun's second home run of the season snapped a 39-inning shutout streak for St. Louis pitchers. The Brewers had not scored since the second inning Tuesday against the Cubs.
Matheny would have preferred to let the Cardinals closer for now, Mitchell Boggs, pitch the ninth with a cushion. But after Braun connected off Rosenthal, he did not have that luxury.
"The situations you get put into, you got to figure out a way to get out of them," Matheny said.
Milwaukee tied it in the ninth on a leadoff single by Carlos Gomez and an RBI double by Yuniesky Betancourt. Boggs left without retiring a batter and blew his second save in five chances.
"Days like today are tough," Boggs said. "I'm not going to stand here and act like it doesn't affect me, because I care. I wanted to help us win a ballgame today. I didn't do that. If you're a professional, you show up the next day and do your job."
After retiring Rickie Weeks on a fly to start the 10th, Fernando Salas (0-2) gave up Lucroy's first home run of the season.
Brandon Kintzler (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth and got the first out in the 10th. Burke Badenhop retired pinch-hitter Carlo Beltran on a grounder for the final out and his first save.
Adams had another big day in the loss, hitting a home run and a single. He has homered in three straight games and has a hit in all five games he has played.
Adams is batting .611 (11-for-18) with three homers and eight RBI.
"I'm seeing it well, and feeling good at that plate," Adams said. "It all comes back to the work I'm getting in the cage before the game and making sure I watch the video and I'm prepared."
Matt Holliday had an RBI single and Yadier Molina an RBI double for the other St. Louis runs.
The Cardinals broke through against Marco Estrada with four consecutive two-out hits in the third, including an RBI single by Holliday and an RBI double to the gap by Molina. Allen Craig was thrown out at the plate trying to score on Molina's hit.
Adams made it five straight hits when he led off the fourth with a 419-foot homer to center that made it 3-0.
NOTES: Molina received his fifth consecutive Gold Glove award before the game. ... On Saturday, Adam Wainwright became the first St. Louis pitcher with a shutout in which he struck out at least one batter in every inning since Bob Gibson accomplished the feat on June 17, 1970, at San Diego.

We will hear more from Scott Schnuck today in a you tube video about a credit and debit card breach. The grocery chain now says 2.4 million Schnucks customers may have been compromised between December of last year and March 2013.
Schnucks says only the card numbers and expiration dates were stolen, not the credit card holder's identity.
“On behalf of myself, the Schnuck family, and all of our 15,000 teammates, I apologize to everyone affected by this incident,” said Scott Schnuck in a press release. “Over the years, technology has helped us deliver superior customer service, but it also introduces risks that we have actively worked to manage through compliance audits, encryption technology and various other security measures.”
The company also sent news outlets a timeline showing what happened and when. The company says it was told of an issue on March 15, formed a response team on March 19, contacted police on the 20th, began to identify the problem on the 28th, but did not communicate any concern to customers until March 30.
According to the company, “if you used your card at any one of the 79 affected stores between December 2012 and March 29, 2013, your card could have been accessed.” Click here for the FULL LIST.
The company has declined to do interviews due to legal concerns over pending lawsuits. The company is preparing a video statement instead.
Schnucks has set up a call line for customers to use for any questions. The number is 1-888-414-8022. The line is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. and the weekend of April 20-21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
