RHP Zac Gallen took a no-decision on Friday when he surrendered two runs (one earned) on four hits with five strikeouts and four walks in the D-Backs 5-4 loss to the Mets on Friday.
The D-Backs offense spotted Gallen four runs and he exited after the sixth inning in a position to win the game but Caleb Smith and the bullpen would cough up the lead. The only runs the Mets scored off Gallen came with a pair of singles in the third and sixth innings, respectively. One of them was unearned due to an Asdrubal Cabrera throwing error. Gallen lowered his season ERA to a stellar 3.04 to go along with a 1.20 WHIP but free passes continue to be an issue for him with a 32:14 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings. To his credit, he’s done a good job limiting the runs and his control should improve as the season wears on. The 25-year-old draws his former team, the Marlins, in his next turn.
