Gallardo struggles in another Brewer loss

Yovani Gallardo’s disastrous 2013 hit another low Thursday afternoon.  The Brewers’ opening day starter couldn’t make it out of the 4th inning as the Brewers fell to the Padres 10-8 at Miller Park.

On the day, Gallardo lasted just 3 2/3 innings surrendering 6-runs on 8-hits as his record fell to 8-8 on the year.  Gallardo was frustrated with himself afterwards…

After scoring 8-runs in the first 3-games of the series with San Diego, Milwaukee put an 8-spot Thursday but still loss.  It was the most runs the team scored since a 9-3 win over Chicago on June 2th.

Carlos Gomez followed up his 4-hit performance Wednesday with a 3-hit game which included his team leading 16th home run of the season.  Yuniesky Betancourt and Nori Aoki also homered for the Brewers.

Milwaukee heads to Colorado Friday night where they open a 3-game series with the Rockies.  Wily Peralta gets the ball for Milwaukee to take on Tyler Chatwood of Colorado. Peralta has allowed just one-earned run over his last 29+ innings.  First pitch is 7:40.
