GLENDALE, AZ (WSAU) Yovani Gallardo got shelled yesterday, as the Milwaukee Brewers were creamed by the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-to-1 in an exhibition game in Glendale Arizona.
Gallardo was only expected to pitch two innings. He started on four days’ rest so the remainder of his spring schedule could correspond to his Opening Day start in two weeks. Gallardo gave up three earned runs on five hits, including a first-inning homer to Adrian Gonzalez – one of two blasts he had on the day.
Gonzalez drove in six runs for the Dodgers, and Mark Ellis had a homer, two singles, and a walk. The Brewers’ only run came in the first on a sacrifice fly by Alex Gonzalez. Hyun-Jin Ryu went five-and-two-thirds innings for the Dodgers. He struck out six and retired the final 11 batters he faced.
The Brewers are now 8-11-and-1 in Cactus League play. Today, the Brewers will play Cleveland. Marco Estrada will start for the Crew.
