Gallardo is the Brewers best pitcher. He’s cranked nine career homers. And now he executes a Jim Dandy of a safety squeeze, right down the first base line, and he beats the play to first. That guy can play on my team any day.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): +2 (+1, success; +1, batter reaches safely)
