Gallardo charged with DUI

MILWAUKEE — Brewers RHP Yovani Gallardo was arrested on a drunken-driving charge Tuesday after he was driving on a city highway with a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit, authorities said.

Deputies responded about 2 a.m. to a report of a possibly intoxicated driver, Milwaukee County sheriff's spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin said. She said a caller reported seeing a driver repeatedly swerving between lanes, and deputies spotted Gallardo driving alone at 40 mph in a 55 mph zone.

"He was very cooperative," McLaughlin said. "He said he had a couple of beers."

Gallardo had red, glassy eyes, slurred speech and an odor of alcohol, and he failed field sobriety tests, the arrest report said. A breath test registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.22, nearly three times the 0.08 limit at which a person is presumed to be impaired, and the reading was matched by a second breath test after his arrest, authorities said.

TRIBUTE TO BOSTON: Several teams, including the Yankees, A's, Marlins, Braves and Cubs, paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by playing the Fenway Park favorite Sweet Caroline at their home parks.

JETER NOT CLOSE: Yankees SS Derek Jeter, who is recovering from left ankle surgery, is not ready for game action, and the team is backing off its target date of May 1 for his return to the lineup.

A'S: 1B Brandon Moss went on paternity leave. OF Shane Peterson was called up from Triple-A Sacramento.

CUBS: 2B Darwin Barney was activated from the DL after missing the first two weeks with a cut left knee.

D'BACKS: 2B Aaron Hill went on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. SS Didi Gregorius was activated from the DL.

INDIANS: CF Michael Bourn is headed to the disabled list with a cut finger, manager Terry Francona said.

MARINERS: The team and DIRECTV Sports Networks announced partnership on a regional sports network in which club ownership will be the majority stakeholder.

NATIONALS: OFs Bryce Harper and Denard Span were out of the lineup with flu symptoms.

RED SOX: Closer Joel Hanrahan went on the 15-day DL with a strained right hamstring.
