Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo yesterday lasted six innings in the Brewers loss to the Oakland A’s. In his 13 starts this season, Gallardo has lasted seven or more innings in only one game. In fact, it has now been 77 games since Gallardo has pitched a complete game.
While Gallardo’s drought may be long, consider his team’s plight… the Brewers have not had a starting pitcher throw a complete game since April 5, 2011, a span of over two years, two months. The pitcher in that game? Gallardo! He pitched a two-hitter in the Brewers 1-0 win over Atlanta.
