Zac Gallen vs. ATL, April 25: 7 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 6 SO, 79 Game Score
You didn't think we were done with April 25th, did you? There was also an amazing start from Zac Gallen! This is like the Penny Lane to MadBum's Strawberry Fields Forever, a double A-side for the ages.
In another shutout win against the eventual World Series Champion Atlanta Braves, Zac Gallen spun an absolute gem. During that series, the Diamondbacks looked like a complete team. On that day, the Diamondbacks put up 12 runs across the 14 innings of play. For reference, during their torrid 13-game losing streak the following month, they didn't score 12 runs total until seven games into that streak.
The 2021 Diamondbacks were such a strange, streaky team.
