  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Takes blown save

    Gallegos allowed two runs on three hits with one strikeout in 1.1 innings Saturday versus the Cubs. He took a blown save.

    Gallegos' misstep was a game-tying, two-run home run to Rafael Ortega in the eighth inning. Manager Oli Marmol then replaced Gallegos with Ryan Helsley on the mound, and it was the latter reliever who got the final five outs of the game and the win as the Cardinals pulled ahead in their half of the eighth. Saturday's outing marked the end of a six-inning scoreless streak for Gallegos. He has two wins, one save, two holds and a blown save in seven outings in June, whereas Helsley has a win, two saves, a hold and a blown save. That doesn't lend much clarity to the Cardinals' two-man closer committee, but Helsley has allowed only two runs (one earned) this season while Gallegos has been noticeably easier to score off of with a 3.21 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 34:8 K:BB across 28 innings.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Collects ninth save

    Gallegos gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his ninth save of the season in the first game of a doubleheader against the Pirates.

    Ryan Helsley had picked up four saves since Gallegos' last successful conversion May 20, but Helsley got the call in the eighth inning in this one. The duo's late-inning usage will likely continue to depend on matchups and situations rather than the Cardinals having a clear divide between setup man and closer, but Gallegos didn't hurt his standing with a 2.00 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB over nine innings between his last two saves.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Picks up second win

    Gallegos (2-2) pitched a perfect inning, striking out one and earning the win Monday versus the Pirates.

    Gallegos became the pitcher of record when Paul Goldschmidt put the Cardinals ahead for good with a seventh-inning solo shot. After opening the season as the Cardinals' closer, Gallegos has started to serve in more of a fireman role, as manager Oli Marmol brings him for the most important spots. That has led to more save chances for Ryan Helsley, who now trails Gallegos only 8-5 on the team's season saves leaderboard. The veteran right-hander has a 3.04 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 31:8 K:BB while adding two holds in 23.2 innings overall.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Snags win in nightcap

    Gallegos (1-2) allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk with five strikeouts over two innings to earn the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

    Gallegos kept the game tied in the ninth inning and also pitched the 10th, allowing an RBI double to Jason Heyward. Luckily for Gallegos, the Cardinals had established a four-run lead in the 10th, and he was able to finish off the contest for his first win of the year. The 30-year-old right-hander has allowed runs in consecutive appearances for just the second time this year. He has a 3.48 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB across 20.2 innings while converting eight of his 11 save chances. He's started to see some closing opportunities go to Ryan Helsley, which makes the Cardinals' situation a two-man closer committee for now.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Blows save in eighth inning

    Gallegos was charged with a blown save, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out two in a 3-2 extra-inning victory Tuesday over San Diego.

    Gallegos entered the game in the eighth inning with the Cardinals leading 2-0. Trent Grisham took him deep for a two-run blast to even the score. It was the third blown save of the season for the veteran and, while he's received the vast majority of save opportunities for St. Louis, he last closed a game May 20. Ryan Helsley has notched two saves since Gallegos last converted a chance and Helsley pitched a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday in a tied ballgame.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Earns five-out save

    Gallegos struck out five in 1.2 scoreless innings to earn the save in Friday's win over the Pirates.

    The Pirates put together a late rally during Friday's matchup, but Gallegos entered the game with runners on first and third and struck out every batter he faced to record the final five outs of the game while preserving the two-run lead. The right-hander was charged with a blown save Thursday against the Mets, but it was encouraging to see him bounce back in Friday's series opener. Gallegos has now converted eight of 10 save chances over 15 appearances this season.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Blows save in extras

    Gallegos blew the save after allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit without recording an out during Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Mets.

    Gallegos came on in the bottom of the 10th with the designated runner on second and a one-run lead, and he promptly gave up a walk-off, two-run homer to the first batter he faced, Pete Alonso. It was the relievers' second blown save of the campaign in just nine opportunities. Ryan Helsley, who has allowed only one unearned run with a 24:2 K:BB over 13.2 innings, could begin to see more save chances if Gallegos continues to falter.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Notches seventh save

    Gallegos recorded the save during Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets after allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth inning. He had two strikeouts and one walk.

    The right-hander issued a one-out walk and gave up a single to put the winning run on base, but he bounced back to strike out Mark Canha and Francisco Lindor. It was Gallegos' first save chance since May 6, and he's converted seven of eight opportunities this season with a 3.46 ERA and 12:4 K:BB across 13 innings.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Secures sixth save

    Gallegos saved Friday's 3-2 win against San Francisco, allowing one hit in the ninth inning.

    Gallegos let Thairo Estrada reach base with one out but ended the game with a double play to register his sixth seven in seven opportunities. Aside from a four-run appearance on April 25, Gallegos has limited the damage to one run in eight innings, with St. Louis prevailing in each of those appearances.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Snags fifth save of 2022

    Gallegos pitched a scoreless ninth inning on his way to a save in Monday's 1-0 win over the Royals. He allowed one hit and recorded two strikeouts.

    After blowing his last save chance April 25 against the Mets, Gallegos made relatively quick work of the Royals in this one. The 30-year-old worked around a two-out single by Carlos Santana, striking out Hunter Dozier to end the contest. He threw 13 of his 18 pitches for strikes and recorded multiple strikeouts for the first time in four appearances. The save was his fifth of the season in six opportunities, and his ERA and WHIP now stand at 5.63 and 1.38, respectively, over eight innings.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Blows first save

    Gallegos (0-1) blew his first save of the season Monday in a 5-2 loss to the Mets, coughing up four runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning.

    Entering the game to begin the ninth inning with the Cardinals nursing a 2-0 lead, Gallegos saw Nolan Arenado sail a throw on what could have been the third out but instead was ruled an infield single by Mark Canha. Jeff McNeil then doubled, and Dominic Smith brought both home by beating Gallegos to the bag after Paul Goldschmidt fielded his scorching grounder deep behind first base. It was a tough way for Gallegos to blow his first save in five tries and eventually take the loss, but the right-hander's ratios coming out of Monday are deceptive -- his 6.43 ERA on the season would drop to 1.29 if Canha's hit were scored an error on Arenado instead.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Allows run in fourth save

    Gallegos earned the save Saturday against the Reds after giving up a run on two hits during the ninth inning. He didn't strike out or walk a batter.

    The 30-year-old surrendered his first run of the season on a single, a double and a wild pitch, but he fortunately entered with a three-run cushion and still finished out the save. Its Gallegos' fourth save in as many chances this season, and he's given up one run on four hits with a 5:2 K:BB across 6.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Collects third save

    Gallegos gave up a hit and a walk while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his third save of the season in a 2-0 win over the Marlins.

    There was some concern in the spring whether Gallegos would have to share save opportunities for the Cardinals this season or be the team's primary closer, but he's answered those questions decisively through the first couple weeks. The 30-year-old right-hander has yet to allow a run over five appearances, converting all three of his save chances and posting a 5:2 K:BB over 5.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Notches second save

    Gallegos converted a save against the Brewers on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out one over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    After Milwaukee scored its first run with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Gallegos was brought in to finish that frame and close things out in the ninth. The right-hander allowed a single to start off the final inning but escaped with the save by inducing a popout followed by a double play. Gallegos has converted both of his save chances on the season and has yet to allow a run through 3.1 innings.
