Yovani Gallardo pitched eight innings of one-run ball to beat the Dodgers on Saturday.

Gallardo trailed Clayton Kershaw in strikeouts, 11-3, and also gave up one more hit than the Dodgers' left-hander, but he came away with the win. All six hits he gave up were singles, and he benefitted from Carlos Gomez throwing out Justin Turner at second base in the fourth. It's the fourth time in five stars that Gallardo has pitched at least seven innings and allowed one or no runs. He's 8-6 with a 3.32 ERA.

Yovani Gallardo limited the Cubs to a run over seven innings Monday in the Brewers' 3-1 victory.

Gallardo struggled with his command and turned in his second shortest start of the year last time out, but this makes three terrific outings for him in his last four appearances. He even got a rare win out of it. Gallardo is now 7-6 with a 3.44 ERA over 24 starts this season. Teammate Wily Peralta has allowed four more runs over two fewer innings in his 23 starts, yet stands 14-6.
Aug 11 - 11:52 PM

Yovani Gallardo fell to 6-6 after giving up four runs in four innings against the Giants on Wednesday.

It could have been a lot worse; Gallardo gave up five more hits and a couple of walks after a three-run first, but the Giants got to him for just one more run. It was his second shortest start of the year. The four walks tonight matched his total from his five starts in July.
Aug 7 - 12:48 AM

Yovani Gallardo yielded just three hits over seven scoreless frames in Wednesday's 5-0 victory over the Rays.

Gallardo gave up just three singles, walked one and struck out five. Though he's dealt with his bouts of inconsistency, the right-hander has tossed 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two outings. He'll take a nifty 3.38 ERA into a home start against the Giants next week.
Jul 30 - 3:57 PM

Yovani Gallardo tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Mets on Friday, but was handed a no-decision.

Tough break for Gallardo, who was dominant. He allowed just four hits (all of them singles) and no walks while fanning eight batters. However, Francisco Rodriguez blew his chance at a win in the ninth. Gallardo is now winless over his last six starts. He'll try to turn that around when he faces the red-hot Rays next week.
Jul 26 - 12:05 AM

Yovani Gallardo struggled again, but walked away with a no-decision after allowing four runs in six innings to the Nationals as the Brewers lost on Sunday.

Gallardo has now allowed four or more runs in three out of his last four starts. On the afternoon, the right-hander yielded eight hits -- including a home run to Ryan Zimmerman -- while walking two and striking out six. Gallardo now carries a 3.79 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 92/34 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back when he takes on the Mets at home on Friday.
Jul 20 - 5:26 PM

Yovani Gallardo yielded five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

Gallardo was handed an early 6-0 lead, but he gave up three home runs to get the Cardinals back in the ballgame. The bullpen finished the job. Gallardo struck out three and walked one in the no-decision and will finish a resurgent first half with a 3.68 ERA and 86/32 K/BB ratio over 115 innings.
Jul 12 - 12:34 AM

Yovani Gallardo held the Reds to two earned runs over seven innings but the Brewers lost on Sunday.

Gallardo gave up eight hits but didn't walk a batter and struck out three in a nice bounceback outing after yielding eight runs -- five earned -- over just five innings last week. He was left with a no-decision, with reliever Will Smith taking the loss. Gallardo will carry a 3.45 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into his next start versus St. Louis.
Jul 6 - 3:53 PM

Yovani Gallardo kept rolling along on Tuesday, holding the Nationals to one run on four hits over six innings in a no-decision.

Gallardo walked two and struck out five in his six innings of work. The start was the fourth straight in which the right-hander allowed one run or fewer over six or more innings of work, lowering his ERA to 3.23 in 16 starts this year. The Brewers bullpen blew a chance for him to get his sixth win, but he's still throwing really well heading into Sunday's tilt with the Rockies.
Jun 25 - 1:38 AM

Yovani Gallardo limited the Diamondbacks to one run and four hits in seven innings to win Thursday.

Gallardo hasn't been as fortunate in the run support department as the rest of the Brewers' starters, but four runs were enough to get him his fifth win today. For the season, the Brewers have scored 47 runs in his 15 starts, an average of 3.1 runs per game. For everyone else, they've averaged 4.7 runs per game. That's a big reason Gallardo is barely over .500 (5-4) despite a 3.34 ERA.
Jun 19 - 7:12 PM

Yovani Gallardo hurled seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in a no-decision versus the Reds.

Gallardo struck out eight batters in the dominant outing, but the Brewers didn't take over the lead until he was gone from the game so he was left without a win for his efforts. The right-hander has a cool 3.51 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 14 starts this season. He is scheduled to pitch on the road against the Diamondbacks next.
Jun 14 - 10:19 PM

Yovani Gallardo threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just four hits, to earn the win over the Pirates on Sunday.

Gallardo walked just one while striking out eight. It was a much-needed showing for the right-hander, as he'd fallen on hard times since his stellar April. The win moved him to 4-4 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the year. He'll face the Reds on Saturday.
Jun 8 - 4:43 PM

Yovani Gallardo was lit up on Tuesday, giving up six runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Twins.

The right-hander walked just one while striking out six, but the big damage came on two swings that made contact. Josh Willingham hit a three-run home run in the third inning, and Brian Dozier's two-run homer in the fifth capped the scoring for the Twins. After a strong start, Gallardo now owns a 4.08 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 12 starts. He'll take on the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Jun 3 - 11:57 PM

Yovani Gallardo yielded three runs in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a win over the Orioles.

Giving up two homers and five walks in 6 2/3 innings isn't typically a recipe for success, but Gallardo made it work tonight. It was his first win since way back on April 6. He hasn't been lit up at any point, but he's gone from allowing no runs in his first two starts to one or two runs in the next three to three or four runs in each of the last six.
