Yovani Gallardo pitched a gem tonight, putting together a complete game with five hits and allowing just two runs on Carlos Lee's fourth home run of the season. He struck out seven and walked no one.

The game turned around in the fifth, when the Brewers got five straight singles off Felipe Paulino with two outs to turn a 2-0 deficit into a 4-2 advantage. With the exception of Bill Hall, every Brewer position player had a hit and each of the top five hitters in the lineup drove in one run.
