Gallardo allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits, walking three and striking out five over six innings of a 7-4 win against Boston on Friday night.

Gallardo (5-6, 3.88 ERA) caught a struggling Red Sox offense to log his fifth win of the year. While he can be quite a challenge for opposing batters, he remains inconsistent with his command, and needed 104 pitches (63 for strikes) to cover six innings in this one. Fantasy owners will probably continue to run him out there, and hope for the best on any given night.

Gallardo allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits, walking two and striking out three over 5.1 innings of an 8-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday night.

Gallardo (2-5, 4.19 ERA( has now dropped four consecutive decisions, but hasn't pitched all that badly. Two of the runs he allowed in this one scored after he departed, and a lack of offense (the Rangers have averaged less than one run a game for him in those four losses) have also contributed to the streak.

Gallardo struck out five and walked three while allowing three runs on three hits over six innings in a loss to the Mariners on Monday night.

The quality start Monday is the second in five trips to the mound for Gallardo this season. His peripherals have been good thus far (26:8 K:BB in 26.2 innings), but he's been hittable (1.39 WHIP) with an occasional vulnerability to the long ball (three homers allowed). Gallardo is using a similar pitch mix to his last few seasons with the Brewers, but his slider is getting punished less frequently thus far in 2015. His next start is scheduled for Sunday against the A's in Arlington.
