VIDEO: Brewers win on pinch-hit double by ... Yovani Gallardo
The Brewers topped the Orioles in 10 innings on Tuesday night, and they did so on a walk-off double by a Wednesday night's starting pitcher.
In the 10th inning of an eventual 7-6 win over the Orioles, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, out of position players, summoned Yovani Gallardo to pinch-hit for Francisco Rodriguezwith two out and the winning run on first. Let's roll tape ...
Unexpected outcome! Let it be said that that's not any kind of "cheap" double. To be sure, though, Gallardo can hit a little bit, at least by the ground-scraping standards of pitchers (12 career homers, one Silver Slugger).
Gallardo, it should also be noted, is the Brewers' scheduled starter for Wednesday night's series finale.
