Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo tosses 8 1/3 scoreless innings


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo dominated the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Gallardo threw 8 1/3 scoreless innings, allowed just three hits and two walks while picking up his seventh win of the year. He also struck out four batters.

"Anytime you get an outing like that from your pitcher, when you're on a six- game skid, you can call it a stopper-type performance," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com.

Gallardo (7-6) has a 2.72 ERA with 70 strikeouts and 28 walks in 96 innings this season.


Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo lasts five innings in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo had good stuff during Sunday's outing against the White Sox.

Gallardo threw five innings of scoreless baseball before being pulled from the game. He allowed just five hits and struck out three batters while picking up a no-decision.

"It's obviously not an easy day when you throw almost 20 pitches per inning," Gallardo said. "I've got to give them credit, they made me battle. They made me work. I fell behind quite a bit, and that obviously didn't help."

Gallardo (6-6) has a 2.98 ERA with 66 strikeouts and 26 walks in 87 2/3 innings this year.

Chi Chi Gonzalez, who was slated to start Sunday, will be pushed back to Tuesday against the Athletics.

SP Yovani Gallardo gets back on track for Rangers


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) One start after allowing a season-high 10 hits, Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo found his stride and picked up his fourth victory of the year as Texas defeated the Yankees 5-2 on Sunday. 

Gallardo went six innings, allowing just four hits and two earned runs. More importantly, he walked just one batter while striking out six to pick up his second win in his last seven shots. 

"I was able to use my curveball on first pitch to get ahead of hitters or behind in the count," Gallardo said to MLB.com. "When I did leave my fastball over the plate, the hitters' timing was off just a little bit."

Gallardo was able to induce nine ground ball outs and keep the Yankees offense in check to lower his ERA to 4.13.

Gallardo was tagged for a solo home run from David DeJesus in the second inning.

"It's just one of those things you can't explain that happens in this game," he said. "The only thing I can do is go out there and make a pitch. Anything after that, I can't control."

Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo excited about Texas homecoming


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Rangers introduced newly acquired Yovani Gallardo on Wednesday, just two days after acquiring him in a trade with the Brewers. Gallardo, who went to high school in Fort Worth, Texas, and still lives in the area, expressed his excitement about joining the Rangers roster.

"Growing up here in Texas, living in Fort Worth all my life, it's definitely a dream to have the opportunity to play for a team like the Rangers," Gallardo said, per MLB.com. "Now I have that opportunity, and I can't wait. I can't wait for it to get underway, and I'm looking forward to it.

"It was a dream [to play for the Rangers]. Having played baseball all my life, I always wanted to get to that goal that I had in mind. I didn't come to very many [Rangers] games as a kid, but I always watched on TV, that's for sure."

Gallardo joins a rotation that features Yu Darvish and Derek Holland. Gallardo has thrown at least 180 innings the last six seasons.

"It has been a focus point for us to add starting pitching, and Yovani was one of the guys we were hoping to land," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said earlier this week.
