Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Hard-luck loss Friday
Gallen (17-9) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over 6.1 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Astros.
Gallen posted a quality start, but Arizona's offense didn't generate a run until the ninth inning, leaving him with a tough loss. The right-hander had a shaky September, allowing 18 runs (17 earned) over 36.2 innings while going 3-3 in his starts for the month. Overall, he ends the regular season with a 3.47 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 220:47 K:BB through 210 innings over 34 starts. He'd likely be available during the wild-card round if the Diamondbacks secure a playoff spot.... See More ... See Less

Gallen (17-8) earned the win Sunday, allowing three hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against the Yankees. He struck out eight.
It was an impressive performance from Gallen after he was tagged for 10 earned runs over 10 innings in his previous two outings. He's now second in the league with 17 wins as he lowered his ERA to 3.49 with a 1.11 WHIP and 213 strikeouts through 33 starts (203.2 innings) this season. Gallen will look to cap a strong regular season on a high note in his next start, currently scheduled for next week against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Gets back in win column
Gallen (16-8) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Giants.

The Giants put two runs up in the first inning and another two in the fifth, with two coming via sacrifice fly. Gallen has faltered lately but still has a 3.60 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 205:44 K:BB through 197.2 innings over a career-high 32 starts this season. He's projected for a favorable road start versus the White Sox early next week.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Mauled by Mets
Gallen (15-8) took the loss against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out four batters over five innings.
Gallen clearly didn't have his best stuff against New York, as he served up four extra-base hits, including a two-run homer to Mark Vientos. The Arizona ace tossed a shutout against the Cubs in his previous trip to the mound but has been struggling as a whole of late -- Wednesday's outing was his third over his past four starts in which he's given up at least five earned runs. Gallen's sudden inability to miss bats has played a factor in the poor stretch, as in each of the aforementioned three starts he's struck out four or fewer batters. The recent rough patch has pushed his season ERA up to 3.50, nearly a run higher than the 2.54 mark he posted last year.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Tosses shutout in Chicago
Gallen (15-7) threw nine scoreless innings and struck out nine in Friday's 1-0 win over the Cubs. He allowed three hits and one walk.
After struggling to the tune of a 9.28 ERA over 10.2 innings in his last two outings, Gallen rebounded for a brilliant start at Wrigley Field. He needed only 107 pitches to complete his second career shutout. The 28-year-old is having a career year, posting personal bests in wins (15), innings (187.2) and strikeouts (195) this season. His next start is slated to come on the road against the Mets.... See More ... See Less

Gallen (14-7) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings, taking the loss Sunday versus the Orioles.
Gallen gave up four runs through two innings before settling down, only to stumble again in the sixth. While he's faced tough opponents in consecutive starts (Baltimore and Los Angeles), Gallen has not risen to the occasion while surrendering 11 runs over his last 10.2 innings. He's now at a 3.48 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 186:38 K:BB through 178.2 innings across 29 starts this season. The right-hander is projected for a road start versus the Cubs in his next outing....

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Stumbles versus Dodgers
Gallen (14-6) allowed six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings to take the loss Monday versus the Dodgers.
Gallen was tagged for four homers in this contest after giving up just two long balls across his last five starts combined. He also allowed just seven runs across 31.1 innings in that span before nearly matching it in this dud of an outing. The right-hander is now at a 3.32 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP and 182:37 K:BB through 173.1 innings over 28 starts on the year. Given the quality of the opponent, it's fair to write this off as a bump in the road. Gallen is projected to make his next start at home versus another challenging foe in the Orioles this weekend....

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Tames Padres again Thursday
Gallen (13-5) earned the win over San Diego on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out three batters over 6.1 innings.
Gallen made his second start against the Padres in less than a week and took home his second win, limiting San Diego to just a fifth-inning run. The Arizona ace wasn't quite as dominant as in his previous outing -- he gave up multiple hard-hit balls that went for outs and notched just three swinging strikes -- but he nonetheless finished with his fourth straight quality start. Gallen lowered his ERA to 3.17 with the strong outing, moving him into eighth place among qualified MLB pitchers. He's added a 1.05 WHIP (sixth in the league) and 168 strikeouts (also sixth-best in baseball) over 162 innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Silences San Diego for 12th victory
Gallen (12-5) earned the win over the Padres on Saturday, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out eight batters over six scoreless innings.
Gallen limited the Padres to five baserunners and punched out eight batters en route to his third straight quality start. This was his best outing of the trio, as he finished without yielding any runs for the first time since May 30. Gallen has continued to thrive as a reliable ace in the midst of Arizona's midseason slide, as he's tossed at least six innings in 10 of his past 11 starts and has posted a 3.41 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 72:13 K:BB over 71.1 frames during that stretch. The right-hander ranks third in the National League with 165 strikeouts on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Strikes out eight in no-decision
Gallen allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven innings Sunday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.
Gallen faced the minimum through five innings before running into some trouble in the sixth. A one-out double and a walk put two on for the Twins and a wild pitch moved both runners into scoring position before a base knock by Carlos Correa scored two. Sunday was Gallen's second time reaching eight strikeouts over his last six starts and his first start allowing fewer than three runs since July 7, which was also the last time he picked up a win. Still, Gallen sits fourth in the National League in ERA (3.37), second in WHIP (1.08) and third in strikeouts (157). He'll look for better fortune his next time out, as he currently projects to face the Padres next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Turns in quality start

Gallen returned for the seventh after he gave up three runs through the first six innings, but he recorded just one out in the frame and surrendered two more runs. The right-hander has scuffled in three starts since the All-Star break with 11 runs allowed, including five homers, across 18.1 innings. Gallen still has a strong 3.36 ERA and 1.08 WHIP for the season, but he may need to rediscover his more dominant form to give the Diamondbacks a realistic chance of claiming the NL West crown....

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Strikes out five over seven frames
Gallen did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits over seven innings against Atlanta. He struck out five.
Gallen was perfect through five innings before surrendering a solo home run to Orlando Arcia in the bottom of the sixth. The right-hander was again victimized by the long ball in the seventh, this one coming off the bat of Matt Olson for a two-run shot as Atlanta fought its way back. Gallen has now allowed at least three runs in four of his last five starts, going 2-2 over that stretch. He's also surrendered at least one home run in each of those four outings.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Allows three runs in loss
Gallen (11-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over five innings against Toronto. He struck out five.
Gallen struggled with his command early, walking two batters in the first frame before giving up a second-inning leadoff single to Whit Merrifield, who eventually came around to score one of two runs for Toronto in the frame. The right-hander would again be victimized by Merrifield to begin the bottom of the fourth, this time for a solo home run as the Blue Jays took a 3-2 lead. Gallen allowed the leadoff man to reach base in four of his five innings of work and failed to make it through six innings for the first time in his last six starts. He'll look for better results next weekend when the Diamondbacks travel to Cincinnati to take on the Reds.... See More ... See Less

Gallen will start for the National League in Tuesday's All-Star Game versus the American League, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
It will be Gallen squaring off against Gerrit Cole (at least for the first inning or two) in the Midsummer Classic. Gallen is manager Rob Thomson's pick after he won 11 games while posting a 3.04 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 125:23 K:BB over 118.1 innings covering 19 starts for the NL West-leading Diamondbacks....
