It was a strange start for Gallen, who allowed five hits and also walked six batters. In many respects he was lucky to escape with only one earned run given up.

Zac Gallen earns the win in Arizona debut

Zac Gallen earned the win in his Diamondbacks debut on Wednesday against the Phillies, striking out six while tossing five scoreless innings.

Fantasy Impact

Gallen walked three and allowed just one hit in the performance, which lowered his ERA to a superb 2.40 through eight big league starts. The 24-year-old is typically going to be a must-start pitcher moving forward, but he has a daunting matchup next time out versus the Rockies in Coors. Fantasy owners will probably want to leave him on the bench for that one.
