While Yovani Gallardo may not be as flashy as some of the other pitchers out there, he will usually keep the Brewers in the game. Tonight's start was his 24th quality start of the season. He's only three quality starts away from setting the Brewers record for quality starts in a season, and two away from tying it. Here is a list of the season leaders:

Player Season Quality Starts
Marty Pattin 1971 26
Teddy Higuera 1986 26
Mike Caldwell 1978 25
Chris Capuano 2006 25
Teddy Higuera 1988 24
Doug Davis 2004 24
Ben Sheets 2004 24
Yovani Gallardo 2012 24

With 3-4 starts left this season (depending on if Ron Roenicke decides to manipulate the pitching schedule), he will have a chance to either tie or break the record this year. With the Brewers in a hot playoff race for the second wild card spot, they will need every quality start they can get to make this happen.
