MLB: Historic! Mexican pitcher sets Cardinals franchise record

The Mexican Giovanny Gallegos has shone in the 2021 Season of MLB as reliever of St. Louis Cardinals, team that has also been unstoppable in recent days. And if that was not enough, Gallegos set a save record in the Cardinals franchise thanks to the performances he has had on the mound especially in the last 30 days.

Giovanny Gallegos was named the ‘Mexican of the Week’ in MLB after giving great performances on the mound that led to him becoming the new record holder in the St. Louis Cardinals.

According to data shared by @MLB_Mexico, Gallegos set the record for the most saves for a Mexican and a Cardinals pitcher in the span of a month with the 11 he achieved in September.

The pitcher of the San Luis team left behind other “Aztec” pitchers such as Joakim Soria, Juan Acevedo, Sergio Romo and Roberto Osuna, who at the time managed to make 10 saves.

Giovanny Gallegos is having the most fruitful season of his MLB career as a pitcher, given that the St. Louis Cardinals have presented him with 22 chances to save a game and he has served 14 times.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
