Gallardo shines again as Brewers edge Dbacks 3-2


PHOENIX (AP) -- Yovani Gallardo continued his strikeout tear with 10 in five innings, Rickie Weeks and Jim Edmonds homered, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Friday night.

Ryan Braun scored the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch in the fifth inning.

Gallardo (4-2), who struck out five in a row at one point, has reached double digits in strikeouts in three of his last four starts. He allowed three hits in his fourth straight win.

Cole Gillespie hit his first career home run for the Diamondbacks, who were limited to four hits.

Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth inning for his fifth save in nine attempts.

Edwin Jackson (1-4) dropped his third straight decision after allowing three runs in seven innings.
