Yovani Gallardo pitched seven solid innings today, allowing two runs on four hits and striking out nine. He's now pitched seven or more innings in five consecutive starts, which is nowhere near the franchise record:

Pitcher Starts Season(s)
Bill Wegman 23 1991-92
Lary Sorensen 17 1978
Mike Caldwell 15 1982-83
Marty Pattin 14 1970
Moose Haas 13 1980
Mike Caldwell 13 1978

Gallardo is, however, one of just four pitchers who have pitched seven or more innings in five consecutive games during the Miller Park Era. One of those pitchers did it five times:

Pitcher Starts Season(s)
Chris Capuano 6 2005
Yovani Gallardo 5 2012
Ben Sheets 5 2006
Ben Sheets 5 2004-05
Ben Sheets 5 2004
Ben Sheets 5 2004
Ben Sheets 5 2004
Ruben Quevedo 5 2002

In the fourth of his five streaks above Ben Sheets also struck out 46 opposing batters over 36.1 innings. Gallardo's nine strikeouts today brought him up to 35 in his streak.
