RHP Zac Gallen took a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed four runs on five hits with one walk and seven strikeouts over six innings as the D-Backs lost to the Astros 7-6.

Kyle Tucker would add an RBI double in the fourth inning but Gallen held the Astros in check other than that. He punched out seven and only walked one. The 26-year-old now owns a 4.53 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 125:45 K/BB ratio over 109 1/3 innings (21 starts). He'll take on the Dodgers at home in his final start of the year.

He kept the Rockies off the scoreboard as well and was in line for the win until the Arizona bullpen blew the lead and the game. Gallen has been hard to trust on a start-by-start basis as consistency has been his biggest bugaboo but this was a stellar effort. He now owns a 4.59 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 96:35 K/BB ratio over 80 1/3 innings (16 starts). He'll get the Phillies on the road in his next turn.
