Stat Of The Day: Eight Is More Than Enough

If you missed today's game, you probably made the right decision. Yovani Gallardo allowed eight runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks while recording just nine outs, including a six run first inning.

It was only the fourth time in his career Gallardo has allowed eight or more runs in a game. He's done it once each full season in his major league career:

Date Opppnent IP H R ER BB K
6/19/2011 Red Sox 3 9 8 5 2 4
8/31/2010 Reds 5 9 8 8 3 6
8/4/2009 Dodgers 5.1 10 9 9 2 7
8/8/2007 Rockies 2.2 12 11 11 3 1

In case you're curious, here's what he did in his next start in each of the previous three occasions:

Date Opponent IP H R ER BB K
9/6/2010 Cardinals 7 4 2 2 2 4
8/9/2009 Astros 7 6 2 2 4 4
8/15/2007 Cardinals 5.2 9 7 7 1 6

The Brewers went 1-2 in those three games.
