Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2009-05-02
--Starting pitching was supposed to be a weakness for the Brewers this season. But, over the first five games of their current home stand, starting pitchers are 1-0 with a 2.37 ERA (8 earned runs in 30 1/3 innings).

--RHP Yovani Gallardo became only the third player in major league history Wednesday to hit a home run in a 1-0 game and also strike out at least 10 hitters (he whiffed 11 against Pittsburgh). The others were the Yankees' Red Ruffing on Aug. 13, 1932, against Washington, and the White Sox's Early Wynn on May 1, 1959, against Boston.

--Class A Brevard County RHP Evan Anundsen threw a no-hitter Tuesday against Dayton, logging a career-high 10 strikeouts. It was the first nine-inning no-hitter in the minors this season. Anundsen (20) was a fourth-round draft pick in 2006 out of Columbine (Colo.) High School.

BY THE NUMBERS: 13 -- Multi-home run games for Prince Fielder after he socked two out of the park Saturday night in a 9-8, 11-inning victory in Houston.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I was going into him. I ain't about no hook-sliding." -- CF Mike Cameron, after a collision at home plate Friday night in Houston put Astros catcher Humberto Quintero on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.
