Gallardo ties Brewers all-time strikeout record

CHICAGO -- Yovani Gallardo etched his way into Brewers history with his 1,206th strikeout in Tuesday's game against the Cubs, tying a franchise record held by Ben Sheets.

Gallardo tied the benchmark in the third inning with his fourth and final fan of the game against Arismendy Alcantara.

The eight-year veteran reached the mark through 210 games, 11 quicker than Sheets. Gallardo will go for sole possession of the record in his next start, likely Monday against the Marlins.
