Yovani Gallardo only allowed two hits over six innings tonight, but struggled to find the strike one and walked six Mets. Those six walks tied a career high which he's now set three times:
|Tonight||Mets||6||6||2||2||Brewers lose, 3-1|
|May 17, 2010||Reds||6||6||4||1||Brewers lose, 6-3|
|June 16, 2009||Indians||6||5||5||2||Brewers win, 7-5|
Gallardo didn't even walk five batters in a game in any of his appearances in 2011. He's the first Brewer to walk six in a game since Manny Parra did it in August of 2010.
With that said, six walks in a game are nowhere near the franchise record. Three Brewers have walked nine: Doug Davis in 2006, Everett Stull in 2000 and Jaime Cocanower in 1986. It's been a long time since a Brewer has approached that record, though: Ben Sheets walked seven in a game in 2008 and he's the only one that's even reached that mark in the last five+ seasons.
