The Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Philadelphia Phillies tonight. The D-Backs are on a 4 game win streak after sweeping Chicago and taking game 1 of this Phillies series. Zac Gallen and his scoreless streak take the mound tonight as well.
Zac Gallen has pitched 27.1 innings of scoreless baseball in a row, and is looking to continue that streak tonight. He will face a tough lineup from Philadelphia, ranked 4th in the NL in home runs. When the Phillies are hot they hit home runs with ease.
Gallen being the professional that he is, surely isn’t thinking about the streak. He aims to go out and pitch a solid night to give his team a chance to win.
Last night after the historic come back from a 7-0 deficit has given the D-Backs and the fans some excitement and momentum to start this week off.
A win tonight would be 5 in a row for a struggling franchise. This mini win streak has put on display the talent we have. That talent is just young and needs a little more time to develop.
