SBNation Coverage

Take a deep breath, folks: The Brewers finally won back-to-back games for the first time in July.

Yovani Gallardo picked up his team-leading tenth win today, allowing three runs (all on a Ryan Zimmerman home run) over seven innings, allowing just five hits and one walk and striking out eleven. It was Gallardo's third ten strikeout performance of both 2009 and his career.

At the plate, the Brewers took a 2-0 lead in the third on Craig Counsell's fourth home run, tied the game at 3 in the fourth on Prince Fielder's 25th home run, and took the lead in the seventh on a misplayed fielder's choice that allowed Mike Cameron to slide in under the tag. The Brewers added another run in the seventh and two more in the eighth to give Trevor Hoffman a day off. Hopefully we'll see him in San Diego tomorrow night.
