Philadelphia 3, Arizona 12
Zac Gallen was on his game once again. The Arizona ace spun seven innings of shutout ball for the Snakes. Meanwhile, the dynamic core of Carroll, Thomas, Varsho, and McCarthy combined for 11 hits (five of them of the extra-base variety) and 10 RBI in support of Gallen.
Gallen Runs Streak to Second Longest in Franchise History
Zac Gallen’s seven dominant innings of work extended his scoreless innings streak to 34 1⁄3 innings, passing Brandon Webb’s mark of 30 innings set in 2006. Now, sitting all alone in second place, Gallen takes aim at Webb’s even more impressive run of 42 innings from 2007.
Gallen, Rookie Bats Dominate
Zac Gallen continues to deal. The young rookie core was firing on all cylinders last night. Christian Walker and Carson Kelly both had multi-hit nights. In total, it was a sound thumping of the opposition on nearly all fronts.
