Sunday afternoon, the Milwaukee Brewers will send Yovani Gallardo to the hill to face the Cincinnati Reds and Mat Latos. It will be Gallardo's 18 th start and Latos' 5th.
Yovani Gallardo saw his record fall to 5 - 5 with a 3.51 ERA after taking the loss his last time out. In that start, Gallardo was torched for 8 runs and 10 hits in just 5 innings. He walked a batter while striking out 3. After 3 straight starts where he allowed just a run per start, Gallardo fell apart. Matching last season's record of 12 - 10 and ERA of 4.18 might not possible for Gallardo at this point.
In 2013, Gallardo was 2 - 1 with a 3.18 ERA in 5 starts against the Reds. This season, Gallardo has started twice against Cincinnati. He lost his 1 st outing and pitched to a no-decision in his 2nd.
Mat Latos lost his last start and that dropped his record to 1- 1 with a 2.45 ERA. The loss was a tough break for Latos because he surrendered just a run on one hit in 7 innings as he walked a batter and struck out 4. But 1 run was too much for his offense to get past and he took the loss. Last season, Latos was an impressive 14- 7 with an ERA of 3.16 in 32 starts.
In 2013, Latos was 1- 2 with a 5.95 ERA in 3 starts against the Brewers. He will have to watch out for Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez because Gomez is batting .471 against Latos with 2 homers and 7 RBIs.
