Right-hander Yovani Gallardo gets the ball for game one of the National League
Divisional Series for the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Manager Ron Roenicke made the announcement on Tuesday.
In his last three starts, Gallardo has allowed just four earned runs in 20 1/3 innings with 36 strikeouts.
Zach Greinke will start the season finale against the Pirates tonight and could still pitch game 2 of the playoffs on short rest on Sunday. If Greinke doesn’t go in game 2, then Shaun Marcum will get the nod.
The Brewers need to win tonight or get Arizona to lose to lock up the #2 seed in the National League playoffs.
