Insight: Gallardo is just 5-5 this season even though he has a 3.57 ERA and the Brewers are 58-46. Gallardo is no longer the 200-strikeout guy he was from 2009-12, but he's cut down on his walks this season and has been much better than he was in 2013.

Description: Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo held Arizona to one run on five hits and didn't walk a batter in seven innings Thursday to pick up his fifth win of the year.
Insight: Gallardo (3.34 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) has allowed two runs on 15 hits over 21 innings his last three starts after giving up six runs in five innings on June 3.

Description: Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo took a no decision Saturday against the Reds despite allowing one run and striking out eight in seven innings.
Insight: Milwaukee turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the seventh to put Gallardo (4-4, 3.51 ERA, 4.26 FIP) in line for the win, but Will Smith gave up a game-tying homer to Billy Hamilton in the ninth. Gallardo used to be a strikeout-per-inning type of guy, but reduced velocity has forced him to go to the two-seam fastball more often. He's struck out 16 batters in his last two starts but has a 7.23 K/9 this season.
