The extra man on the roster for Tuesday's doubleheader,second baseman Scooter Gennett will stay up to fill Gallardo's roster spot.Leaving Tuesday's start in the fifth inning, Gallardo likelyaggravated a nagging hamstring when he dove to catch a bunt attempt in thebottom of the fourth inning.Gallardo stayed in, hit in the top of the fifth inning andreturned to the mound for the bottom of the frame. He was forced to leave thegame while pitching to Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney with the bases loadedand two outs. In the midst of the worst season of his career, Gallardoadmitted the hamstring has been bothering him since before the All-Star breakto reporters after the game. Gallardo is 8-9 with a 4.91 ERA in 23 starts thisseason. Gennett was officially optioned to Nashville following thedoubleheader, as Major League Baseball allows teams to carry a 26th player fora scheduled doubleheader but then requires the player to be sent down rightafter.The 23-year-old started the second game Tuesday and went1-for-4 with a strikeout. He's hitting .217 with a home run and five RBI in 18games with the Brewers this season.Before coming up, Gennett was in a slump at Triple-A,lowering his batting average to .280.
