  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans six in no-decision

    Gallen allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk over six innings in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    It wasn't Gallen's sharpest outing as he gave up a season-high nine hits but he escaped with just two earned runs against him. The 27-year-old also coughed up a homer for the first time since April 4. After a brutal outing against the Pirates, he's given up two or fewer earned runs in three straight outings, resulting in a 2.75 ERA across 78.2 frames. Gallen's next start is projected to be in Detroit.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Shuts out Rockies for win

    Gallen (7-2) shut out the Rockies over six innings to earn his seventh win of the season Tuesday. He allowed five hits and two walks while striking out seven.

    Gallen shut out his opponent for the fifth time this year and his first time since April 26, though he's still looking for his first complete game. He recorded 21 chases, and his seven strikeouts were tied for his highest mark this month. The 30-year-old has been absolutely dominant at home so far this season, recording a perfect 6-0 record with just three runs allowed, a .158 opponent average and 54 strikeouts in six starts. For the year, he owns a sparkling 2.72 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and an 82:16 K:BB over 72.2 innings. He's expected to end the week with a tough test against Atlanta, though it will be another home start.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Decent in Philly

    Gallen did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against the Phillies. He struck out three.

    Gallen held the Phillies off the board for five innings before running into trouble in the sixth, allowing a pair of singles before he was relieved by Kevin Ginkel, who allowed both runners to score. While it wasn't a return to his early-season form, Wednesday's outing was certainly a step forward after Gallen allowed eight runs over 3.2 innings in his last start against Pittsburgh. The 27-year-old righty is 6-2 with a 2.97 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 75:14 K:BB through 11 starts (66.2 innings) this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Falls flat versus Pittsburgh

    Gallen (6-2) took the loss Friday, allowing eight runs (five earned) on eight hits and four walks over 3.2 innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out two.

    Gallen failed to get through four innings for the first time this year and struck out a season-low two batters while posting seasons highs in walks and runs allowed. Friday's performance was easily the right-hander's worst start of the campaign, but his numbers (2.95 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 72:12 K:BB) through 61 innings still look elite. Arizona's ace will look to get back on track during his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for the finale of a three-game set in Philadelphia.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Turns in strong start

    Gallen (6-1) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over 7.2 innings to earn the win over the Giants on Saturday.

    Gallen had another excellent start in his longest outing of the year. He threw 66 of 97 pitches for strikes en route to earning his sixth win in his last seven starts. After a shaky first two starts of the year, Gallen has rebounded to his full potential. He has a 2.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 70:8 K:BB across 57.1 innings through nine outings overall. The Arizona ace is projected to make his next start on the road in Pittsburgh.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Masterful again Monday

    Gallen (5-1) earned the win over Miami on Monday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out seven batters over seven innings.

    Gallen tied his season high with seven innings in the victory, and he likely could have gone deeper given that he threw a modest 90 pitches. The right-hander didn't allow any homers for the sixth straight outing and registered his fifth quality start over that span. After starting the season with two subpar starts, Gallen has been incredible across his past six trips to the mound, posting a minuscule 0.92 ERA and 0.62 WHIP with a ridiculous 54:2 K:BB over 39 innings. He's tied for the NL lead with five wins and ranks second in MLB with 64 punchouts on the campaign.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Scoreless streak ends

    Gallen did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on seven hits over five innings against the Rangers. He struck out six.

    Gallen entered Tuesday with four straight scoreless starts of at least six innings. The Rangers scored in the first inning and then pushed across two more in the fifth, which was Gallen's last inning. The righty still left the game with the lead, but the Arizona bullpen couldn't hold on, keeping Gallen at four wins. Gallen is off to a dominant start with a 2.53 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 2023.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Extends scoreless streak

    Gallen (4-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 2-0 victory over the Royals, scattering four hits without walking a batter over 6.1 scoreless innings while striking out 12.

    The right-hander has been all but untouchable lately, and he extended his scoreless streak to 28 innings while fanning double-digits batters for the third time in his last four starts. Gallen produced 17 swinging strikes among his 97 pitches, and he'll take a dazzling 2.15 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 51:5 K:BB through 37.2 innings into his next outing, which is likely to come next week on the road against the Rangers.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans 11 in scoreless masterpiece

    Gallen (3-1) earned the win Friday, allowing two hits over seven scoreless innings in a 9-0 win over the Padres. He struck out 11 and did not walk a batter.

    This excellent performance came as no surprise, as Gallen is currently one of the hottest pitchers in the majors. He hasn't allowed a run over his last 20.2 innings pitched, and he currently leads baseball with 39 strikeouts. Furthermore, the 27-year-old's 0.80 WHIP currently ranks fifth in MLB. He is tentatively slated to face the Royals in his next start.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Throws another scoreless outing

    Gallen (2-1) earned the win Sunday, allowing zero runs on two hits through 6.2 innings in a 5-0 victory over the Marlins. He struck out seven.

    Gallen impressed again, looking untouchable for a second consecutive game. The 27-year-old quickly retired the first 13 Marlins batters he faced and did not allow a run throughout his 6.2 innings of work. Following this performance, Gallen has gone 13.2 innings without yielding a run and has racked up 18 strikeouts while allowing a single walk during that span. He holds a 3.33 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over 24.1 innings pitched and will look to continue this scoreless streak in his next start, tentatively scheduled this week for Arizona's upcoming series with San Diego.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Tosses seven shutout innings

    Gallen (1-1) earned the win Monday, allowing zero runs on three hits and one walk over seven innings in a 3-0 victory over the Brewers. He struck out 11.

    The only time the Brewers got multiple runners on base against Gallen came in the second inning, but the right-hander got out of the jam by striking out back-to-back batters and went into cruise control after that. Gallen's first two starts of the campaign were a bit shaky, serving up nine earned runs across 10.2 innings, but Monday's outing should put him right back on track. Across 31 starts last year (184 innings), Gallen posted a 2.54 ERA with a 192:47 K:BB.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans three in no-decision

    Gallen did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and one walk over six innings against the Padres. He struck out three.

    Homers allowed to Nelson Cruz and Xander Bogaerts put Arizona in an early hole. It's been a disappointing start to the season for Gallen, who sits with a 7.59 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 10:4 K:BB through two outings (10.2 innings). He only induced eight swinging strikes on 86 pitches Tuesday. The silver lining here is that he completed six innings after failing to make it out of the fifth on Opening Day. It's also worth noting the opponents will get easier than the Dodgers and Padres.
