CINCINNATI - Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo struck out four Cincinnati batters in the fifth inning on Saturday night.

After striking out Devin Mesoraco and pitcher Edinson Volquez, Gallardo got Brandon Phillips swinging on a pitch that got away from catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Phillips reached first on the wild pitch and stole second, but was stranded when Edgar Renteria struck out swinging.

The only other Milwaukee pitcher with four strikeouts in an inning is Manny Parra, who did it at St. Louis on June 6, 2010.

The last time the Reds had four batters strike out in one inning was April 26, 2006, at Washington, when Jon Rauch struck out David Ross, Bronson Arroyo, Felipe Lopez and Adam Dunn.
