Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo (6-6) saw his streak of 16 2/3 innings without giving up a run snapped when the San Francisco Giants hit him for three runs in the first inning, pulling out a 7-4 win at Miller Park on Wednesday night.
Gallardo gave up four runs on nine hits and walked four in four innings overall. It’s the second shortest outing of the season for Gallardo, who made it through just 3 1/3 innings back on May 20th in Atlanta. Gallardo had gone 6-3 with a 2.81 ERA in nine starts against the Giants before last night’s game.
Michael Morse and Pablo Sandoval each drove in three runs to lead the Giants. Ryan Vogelsong (7-8) gave up one run on seven hits in six innings for the Giants to win back to back starts for the first time since May.
Carlos Gomez led off the bottom of the first with a home run for the Brewers. Aramis Ramirez added a two-run single in the seventh and Khris David hit a solo homer in the ninth, but the Brewers fell to 3-6 in their last nine games.
Wily Peralta (13-6, 3.52) pitches the series finale this afternoon for the Brewers, facing San Francisco’s Jake Peavy (0-2, 4.85). First pitch is 1:10pm this afternoon at Miller Park.
