When the Milwaukee Brewers need a stopper, they go to Yovani Gallardo and he’s usually the cure for whatever is ailing the team, usually a losing streak.
Gallardo worked 7-strong innings and helped his own cause with a game tying home run and the Brewers went on to beat the Florida Marlins 7-4 in Miami. Gallardo improved to 6-2 with a 2.64 ERA and the Brewers saw their 3-game losing streak come to an end. Since starting the season 0-2, Gallardo is 6-0 with a 1.93 ERA over the last 10 outings.
Prince Fielder also clubbed his 9th home run of the season and the 2nd in as many games. The Brewers try to salvage a split of the 4-game series tonight.
