Dicky Gonzalez drops his 12th game of the year

Dicky Gonzalez (YOM) dropped his 12th start of the year yesterday and tied the franchise record for losses in season by a foreign pitcher, originally set by Balvino Galvez in 1997 and 1999.

What I find somewhat interesting, although entirely coincidental and likely nothing more, is that Galvez went 16-6 in his first year with the Giants in 1996 and then followed up that year with his first 12-loss season (Galvez went 12-12 in 1997).

While Gonzalez hasn't pitched quite as well this year, he too is following up a successful first year with the Giants, in which he went 15-2, with a 12-loss season.
