Yovani Gallardo made his MLB debut in Milwaukee Monday night…and was more than impressive in the 5-4 win over the Giants.
His line doesn’t tell the whole story: 6.33 IP, 4 hits, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K’s, 4.26 ERA. After giving up a run in the first, Gallardo settled down to hold the Giants at bay until the 3-run 7th…Gallardo gave up 102 pitches, 62 for strikes.
He also helped his own cause, doubling in Rickie Weeks in the first. 41,631 were in attendance, Prince Fielder hit a homer (his 26th), and Barry Bonds didn’t. All 9 starters got a hit, with Rickie Weeks, just returning from an injury, the lone hitter collecting a pair of hits in the #8 spot.
