Home » Atlanta Braves , Milwaukee Brewers , Yovani Gallardo , Yuniesky Betancourt » Another Tough Night for Gallardo
Yovani Gallardo's last four starts:
Apr 10 - vs. Chicago - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 ER
Apr 17 - at Washington - 5.1 IP, 10 H, 7 ER
Apr 22 - vs. Houston - 6 IP, 8 H, 4 ER
Apr 27 - vs. Cincinnati - 5 IP, 10 H, 6 ER
After each one of those starts, we started to become more and more worried. Still, it's Yovani Gallardo, the ace of this team. Plus, before he started struggling he threw that nine inning, two-hit gem against the Cubs. But then it continued into Monday night against the Braves.
May 2 - at Atlanta - 5 IP, 9 H, 5 ER
We often joke here about how sometimes we go into panic mode a bit too quickly, but I think those last five guys leave cause to be legitimately worried. Gallardo actually started the game out decently, but things unraveled for him in the sixth and the next thing you knew it was a 6-2 loss for Milwaukee. It's frustrating that the man who really has been the foundation of this pitching staff lately has been pitching more like the weakest link. He doesn't appear to be hurt, just struggling, and there's nothing we can really do until he figures things out. Sigh.
Til next time, Brewers fans!
POTG: Yuniesky Betancourt, double sigh.
Offense still missing as well
