Gallardo limited the Rockies to two runs over 6.2 innings, allowing five hits, walking two and striking out six. Gallardo's start on Monday lowered his ERA to 5.37, the lowest point it's been since his second start of the season. His six strikeouts matched his season high. The veteran righty will look to build on his strong start when he takes the mound Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Gallardo (3-2) gave up four runs on five hits and four walks over seven innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out five. After a 2015 in which Gallardo lucked into a 3.42 ERA despite a hideous 1.42 WHIP, his birds have come home to roost this year. He's lost whatever semblance of control he once had, as he's walked four in three straight starts and owns a brutal 37:31 K:BB over 55.1 innings, and his ratios reflect that. In fact, he's only allowed two or fewer runs in three of 11 starts. Unfortunately for the O's and their fans, there aren't many options around to displace Gallardo in the rotation, although it wouldn't be surprising to see them make a trade.
Gallardo (3-1) allowed two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over five innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Angels. Gallardo shut down the Angels for five innings, but gave up a pair of runs in the six innings, leaving the contest with a 2-1 deficit, but the offense later took him off the hook for a potential loss. He's only fired one quality start in his nine outings this year, and his ERA is at 5.82. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.
Gallardo allowed four runs on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision Monday against the Dodgers. Gallardo has allowed fewer than four runs just four times in nine starts this season as he just can't get a rhythm going as an Oriole. He owns a brutal 28:19 K:BB in 39.1 innings and now has a 6.10 ERA. His average velocity has dropped to 88.1 mph, which has taken away what little margin for error he had left.
Gallardo (3-1) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings to earn the win Wednesday at the Padres. Gallardo was provided a 7-0 lead in the top of the sixth inning before allowing a three-run homer in his final inning of work. This was his first quality start in six outing this season, and his ERA is at 5.77. He'll make his next start Monday at the Dodgers.
