Gallardo homers as Brewers squash Pittsburgh 1-0
Yovani Gallardo became the first Major League pitcher in almost seven years to homer in a 1-0 game, as the Milwaukee Brewers beat Pittsburgh at Miller Park Wednesday.
Gallardo's blast came in the seventh inning off Ian Snell.
The last pitcher to win a 1-0 game with a homer was Odalis Perez of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Aug. 28 of 2002.
It was Gallardo's second game-winning homer this season, after he hit a three-run blast off Randy Johnson in San Francisco.
