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.

"The one to Ortiz was a pretty good pitch," Gallardo said. "But the other one to Napoli was right down the middle."

Gallardo's next turn in the rotation is set for Sunday in New York against the Yankees.

Gallardo (3-5) has allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts but brought a four-game losing streak into Wednesday's matchup. He was handed a big lead early and delivered six scoreless innings before the Royals scored a pair of runs in the seventh.

"This is a veteran guy who knows how to pitch with a lead," manager Jeff Banister said of Gallardo, per MLB.com. "He knows it's time to throw strikes, expand when you need to do so but get ahead. A real nice job by Yovani tonight."

Gallardo owns a 3.94 ERA and 32:15 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Red Sox in Boston Tuesday.

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. "Since the beginning of the offseason, the one thing we felt we were lacking was innings in our rotation. I think we are in a lot better position."
