Stat Of The Day: Too Many Homers, But Not A Record

Laura Kaeppeler and Marco Estrada were the only pitchers in a Brewer uniform to have a good day today.

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:

Pitcher Date Opponent IP HR Result
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.
