Yovani Gallardo lasted just 3.2 innings today and tied a career high by allowing four home runs. It's the second time in his career he's allowed four long balls in a game, and both times he was facing the Cardinals. In fact, Gallardo has allowed more than one home run in a game 13 times, and the Cardinals have five of them.
Today's game was the 40th time in franchise history a pitcher has allowed four homers in a game. The franchise record is five, held by five pitchers:
|Randy Wolf||June 9, 2010||Cubs||4,2||5||Brewers lose, 9-4|
|Andrew Lorraine||September 2, 2002 (second game)||Cubs||3.2||5||Brewers lose, 17-4|
|Valerio De Los Santos||April 9, 2000||Cardinals||3.2||5||Brewers lose, 11-2|
|Jeff D'Amico||September 21, 1996||Tigers||6||5||Brewers win, 13-6|
|Mike Caldwell||May 31, 1980||Red Sox||3.1||5||Brewers win, 19-8|
Lorraine is the only Brewer pitcher ever to allow five home runs in a game as a reliever. D'Amico, meanwhile, was actually the winning pitcher in his game.
