Stat Of The Night: Six Too Many

Yovani Gallardo only allowed two hits over six innings tonight, but struggled to find the strike one and walked six Mets. Those six walks tied a career high which he's now set three times:

Date Opponent BB IP H ER Result
Tonight Mets 6 6 2 2 Brewers lose, 3-1
May 17, 2010 Reds 6 6 4 1 Brewers lose, 6-3
June 16, 2009 Indians 6 5 5 2 Brewers win, 7-5

Gallardo didn't even walk five batters in a game in any of his appearances in 2011. He's the first Brewer to walk six in a game since Manny Parra did it in August of 2010.

With that said, six walks in a game are nowhere near the franchise record. Three Brewers have walked nine: Doug Davis in 2006, Everett Stull in 2000 and Jaime Cocanower in 1986. It's been a long time since a Brewer has approached that record, though: Ben Sheets walked seven in a game in 2008 and he's the only one that's even reached that mark in the last five+ seasons.
