The Rangers also scored some early runs for Gallardo, something that has been missing for him. The Rangers gave Gallardo a 4-0 lead after two innings and he made it stand up in a 5-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday.
Gallardo entered the game having been given 2.09 runs of support per nine innings in his first seven starts, the third lowest in the American League.
"It's like I've always said, the guys are going to hit," Gallardo said. "It was a matter of time and they're showing it with good at-bats and scoring runs."
The Rangers, with Shin-Soo Choo hitting a leadoff home run, scored two runs in the first inning. That equaled the amount of runs they scored in the past four games while Gallardo was on the mound. He had not won since April 17 against the Mariners and his four-game losing streak was tied for the longest of his career.
"It was not the first time," Gallardo said. "It's something I can't control. One of the things I've learned is the only thing I can control is hitting the glove. Command my pitches and whatever happens, happens."
Gallardo had a four-game losing streak with the Brewers in 2013.
"There was no frustration," Banister said. "This is a competitor who has been there before. This is a guy who in Milwaukee they looked for to right their ship from time to time. He has pitched in big games. He knows how to pitch. He has been the same guy every time out. He is a quality, veteran pitcher."
Gallardo took a three-hit shutout into the seventh, having allowed just one baserunner to reach second base. He walked just one batter and that was Alex Gordon in the second inning with the score 2-0.
But Prince Fielder made it 4-0 with a two-run home run in the second. Delino DeShields had a one-out triple and scored on Choo's grounder in the fourth.
