SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Yovani Gallardo pitched neatly into the seventh inning and also hit a three-run homer off Randy Johnson to
spoil the Big Unit's debut with the San Francisco Giants, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-2 victory Wednesday night.
Gallardo (1-0), the Brewers' promising 23-year-old right-hander, gave up six hits and struck out six while muzzling a Giants team that scored 10 runs on opening day. He also popped a two-out, two-strike pitch over the short left-field corner fence in the fifth, providing himself with all the run support he needed.
Gallardo, who missed most of last season with serious injuries to both knees, overshadowed the formal Bay Area homecoming for Johnson (0-1).
