CLEVELAND (AP) -- Yovani Gallardo won for the third time in four starts despite walking a season-high six as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 7-5 on Tuesday night.
Gallardo (7-3) gave up two runs and five hits while striking out eight. He twice worked out of bases-loaded jams.
The Indians went hitless in 14 tries with runners in scoring position and left 12 runners stranded overall until Travis Hafner hit a two-run homer with one out in the ninth to make it 7-5.
Milwaukee, leading the NL Central, won for only the third time in nine games. The Indians fell further into last place in the AL Central with their third loss in four games.
