Gallegos got the save against the Cubs on Thursday, tossing a scoreless inning without allowing a baserunner to close out a 5-4 extra-inning victory for the Cardinals. He struck out one and walked none.
Gallegos entered the contest in the 10th inning after the Cardinals had blown a save and retaken the lead and managed to shut the door with a clean effort, picking up his first save of the season and third of his career. He's having a fantastic season, with a 2.07 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 92:15 K:BB across 69.2 innings, but Carlos Martinez is locked in as the Cardinals' closer and should be expected to get the bulk of the save chances through the rest of the season.
Gallegos (3-2) was charged with both a loss and a blown save against the Giants on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on a hit and a walk while recording three strikeouts over 1.2 innings.
Gallegos' troubles can be boiled down to the four-seam fastball that Kevin Pillar, the first batter he faced upon entering in the eighth inning, sent over the left-field wall with Brandon Crawford aboard for a 440-foot, tie-breaking home run. It was the second straight appearance in which Gallegos allowed a ball to leave the yard after not surrendering a homer between May 26 and Aug. 31. Despite the recent stumbles, Gallegos remains a trusted bullpen asset with a 2.27 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and stellar 84:13 K:BB across 63.1 innings.
Gallegos (3-1) was credited with the win over the Cubs on Tuesday, firing a scoreless inning in which he allowed a walk and recorded a strikeout.
Gallegos got through his outing with little trouble, extending what's been a prolonged stretch of strong pitching in the process. The right-hander now has scoreless efforts in 23 of his last 25 trips to the mound, which has lowered his ERA from 4.35 to 2.15. His consistency has naturally made him an increasingly trusted option out of the bullpen for manager Mike Shildt and has helped lead to a 2-1 record, 0.71 ERA and four holds in July alone.
Gallegos (2-1) earned a win in Sunday's victory over the Reds, firing 1.2 perfect innings during which he recorded four strikeouts.
Gallegos once again came through despite entering the game in a sticky situation, getting out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the fifth inning by getting Josh VanMeter and Scooter Gennett on 86 mph sliders for two of his four strikeouts. Gallegos now has five consecutive scoreless appearances, and he's allowed just two earned runs over his last 22 trips to the mound overall. Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports that Gallegos has honed his slider into one of his most effective pitches and that manager Mike Shildt has learned to trust the rookie in high-leverage scenarios because of his pinpoint control (7.9 K/BB, second in NL). "It's about getting outs," Shildt said. "He's a low walk, high strikeout guy, so you can trust him with runners on base and it was a good spot for him. He was huge for us today."
Gallegos (1-1) took the loss against the Mariners on Tuesday, allowing one run on a solo home run and recording three strikeouts over an inning.
Gallegos' one slip-up cost him dearly, as he allowed Tim Beckham's first pinch-hit homer since 2015 in the eighth to snap a 4-4 tie. The 27-year-old reliever was otherwise dominant while mowing down Austin Nola, Dee Gordon and Mallex Smith. Tuesday's stumble aside, Gallegos has allowed only one other earned run since May 26, a 17-appearance stretch during which he's lowered his ERA from 4.35 to 2.79 while also collecting three holds.

It's Gallegos' best stretch of pitching this season, one that's rendered him an especially valuable component of the Cards' middle-relief corps. Gallegos has already worked 30.1 innings despite not making his first appearance until April 11.
