Gallardo came within two outs of a complete game shutout Saturday, allowing just three hits and two walks with four strikeouts to pick up his seventh win of the season.

A one out single by Josh Donaldson in the ninth ended Gallardo's day at 8.1 shutout innings. He finishes June with a phenomenal 0.54 ERA in 33.1 innings on the month, and he'll try to stay locked in when he next takes the mound on Thursday in Baltimore.

Gallardo tossed five shutout innings Sunday against the White Sox, striking out three and walking one en route to a no-decision.

The 29-year-old extended his shutout streak to 12 innings but wasted what could have been an even better start due to a high pitch count, which caused his early exit. Gallardo has rebounded from a tough start to his Rangers career to lower his ERA to a shiny 2.98 and will face the Blue Jays on the road Saturday.

Gallardo earned the win behind seven shutout innings Monday against the Dodgers. He struck out four, walked three, and allowed four hits.

Gallardo is on a five-start run of excellence in which he has thrown at least six innings and allowed no more than two earned runs and no more than five hits. Gallardo's reinvention as a groundballer since his velocity dropped in 2013 has continued this season: he has a career high 54.5 percent ground ball rate through 14 starts, a key factor behind his five consecutive homerless starts. This approach is serving him as he adapts to a new phase of his career, but it has cost fantasy owners valuable strikeouts -- his K/9 dropped to 6.8 after Monday's start, tying a career low set last year.

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 earned his fourth win of the season on Sunday against the Yankees, allowing just two runs and striking out six in six strong innings.

The righty got off to a rocky start and allowed two runs in the first inning, but cruised after that and allowed just two baserunners in the next five frames. Gallardo lowered is season ERA to a respectable 4.13 with this outing and will next face a struggling Red Sox team on Friday.

Gallardo allowed six hits, a walk, and two runs to go with two strikeouts in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.

Gallardo (3-5) finally received run support from the Texas offense. The Rangers had scored just two runs while Gallardo was in the game during a four-start losing streak that matched a career worst. Gallardo took a 5-0 leading into the seventh inning before allowing run-scoring doubles by Kendrys Morales and Salvador Perez. Shawn Tolleson and closer Neftali Feliz then retired the last six Kansas City hitters for the win. Gallardo's next start will be at Boston on Tuesday.

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.
