Stat Of The Day: Two Notes On Dominance

Two games today, so here's a double dose of Stat of the Day.

First, a note from game one: Yovani Gallardo wasn't sharp at all today, but he did set a season high with five strikeouts. That's right: we're four Gallardo starts into the season and he has yet to record enough strikeouts in a game to need to count on two hands.

Gallardo also only recorded four strikeouts in his final outing of 2010, so the streak is now at five starts. That's the longest such run of his career. Here's a look at his performance in those games:

Date Opponent IP H ER BB K
9/29/2010 Mets 3.1 10 7 2 4
3/31/2011 Reds 6 7 2 3 4
4/5/2011 Braves 9 2 0 2 2
4/10/2011 Cubs 5 7 4 4 2
4/17/2011 Nationals 5.1 10 7 0 5

Despite the complete game shutout, Gallardo has a 5.65 ERA during the streak.

In the second game, Livan Hernandez dominated the Brewers...again. In 2010 he pitched a complete game shutout in his only matchup against the Crew, and today he held them to a run on six hits over seven innings. Among teams Hernandez has faced at least five times, he's only been better against one:

Opponent GS IP ERA
Phillies 28 194.1 3.52
Brewers 22 157 3.56
Marlins 32 222 3.57
