Yovani Gallardo Beats Braves
As if shutting down the potent Atlanta offense wasn't enough, Gallardo also scored the winning run on a Ryan Braun RBI single after hitting a blooper that fell just out of reach of a diving Uggla. His overall performance led Steve at Bernie's Crew to dub the team the "Milwaukee Gallardos."
So far this season Gallardo has been a great "replacement" for "ace" pitcher Zack Greinke. I would argue that when Greinke returns the team will sport two aces. Simply put, Gallardo is a very good pitcher, and could still become a great pitcher. So long as he remains healthy and a Brewer, Milwaukee can count on him to give his team a chance to win every time he takes the mound, and as he's shown us time and time again, he'll often make the difference on offense, too.
