Yovani Gallardo has been hard to watch this season but it has been especially dreadful at Safeco Field. In five home starts this season, Gallardo has posted a 7.00 ERA while allowing opponents to hit .306. To make matters worse, Gallardo has a 5.70 ERA in 11 career appearances, 10 starts, against the Colorado Rockies.

The once middling Mariners bats have come alive, averaging 6.5 runs per game during their current four-game winning streak.
