Diamondbacks 7, San Diego 6: It Doesn’t Have to Be Pretty

Diamondbacks 7, San Diego 6: It Doesn’t Have to Be Pretty

Photo by Norm Hall/ Zac Gallen melted down in the fifth, but we somehow managed to scratch out an ugly walk-off win. Full disclosure: I actually stopped watching the game after the sixth inning, and started to write up this recap. I only got as far as the title and the tag line (“Total Eclipse of the Start” and “Every now and then Zac falls apart,” respectively). I kept an eye on the MLB Gameday, and also on the SnakePit Gameday Thread, but I figured I’d just get ahead of it a bit. But no, the Diamondbacks, with some serious help from questionable decisions...

Snake Bytes: 6/22 - No Support for Gallen

Photo by Denis Poroy/ Zac Gallen turned in a gutsy performance, but the Snakes could not score him enough to bring home the win. Diamondbacks News Arizona 2, San Diego 3 (11) Zac Gallen emptied the tank to give Arizona six innings of two-run baseball, but Arizona’s offense was unable to overcome that modest total, eventually falling victim to the obscenity that is the Manfred Man in the 11th inning. Jordan Luplow’s Wild NightJordan Luplow was at the center of many events in last night’s game. There was the crazy inside-the-park home run which left the outfielder...

Diamondbacks 2, San Diego 3 (11 Innings): Two Runs per Gallen?

Photo by Denis Poroy/ Zac was a bit iffy tonight, but once again the offense didn’t give him nearly enough help. In his last start, Zac Gallen hit four of the first eight batters he faced, before righting the ship and doing some serious pitching. So I wasn’t quite sure what to expect tonight. Gallen’s been a bit erratic to say the least. He was facing off against Padres lefty Sean Manaea (and his hair), who started the ballgame with an ERA hovering just under 4.00. So, a decent arm. Seemed likely that we’d be getting a pitcher’s duel. And so it was, after a...

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Zac Gallen suffered the shortest outing of his career. The offense took a while to put anything together. There was some sloppy fielding. It was an all-around game to forget. Diamondbacks News Arizona 5, Philadelphia 7Zac Gallen only managed to complete 1 2⁄3 innings, during which he surrendered six runs, four of them earned. Edwin Uceta then came in and restored order, giving the team 4 1⁄3 innings of scoreless work out of the bullpen. Daulton Varsho had a big night at the plate, but it was not enough to overcome the early deficit. Zac...

We can probably expect Mark Melancon to get the day off. The rest of the bullpen should be available. It looks like Roldofo Castro got punished by the Pittsburgh Pirates...
