Yovani Gallardo had only surrendered as many as three homers in a game once before, that coming when he gave up four against St. Louis last Sept. 1. On Friday, he allowed three homers in an inning to the very same Cardinals team.
Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday took Gallardo deep consecutively, and David Freese followed with a two-run shot after a Lance Berkman walk, giving the Cardinals a 5-2 lead in the third inning against the Brewers.
Gallardo had already allowed a solo homer to Yadier Molina in the second, so he’s tied that career-high with four homers allowed for the game.
Update: Gallardo finally exited in the fourth with the score 6-2. He walked five and allowed three hits besides the four homers, making it a minor miracle that he gave up just the six runs in 3 2/3 innings.
