With his hit tonight, Yovani Gallardo extended his current hitting streak to five games. It's the sixth hitting streak of at least five games by a pitcher in Brewers history, and the second streak by Yovani Gallardo. Here are the other streaks:

Player Streak Date of First Game Date of Last Game
Marty Pattin* 6 April 23, 1969 May 20, 1969
Yovani Gallardo 6 June 25, 2011 July 30, 2011
Jamey Wright 5 April 24, 2001 May 14, 2001
Wes Obermueller 5 May 29, 2004 July 8, 2004
Chris Narveson 5 July 23, 2010 August 14, 2010
Yovani Gallardo 5 July 26, 2012 ?

How long will this streak continue for Gallardo? Just two more games and he'll have the longest streak on this list.

* Note on Marty Pattin's streak - He did have a game during the streak where he was pinch hit for before having an at-bat. By MLB rules, this allowed his streak to continue.
