Wednesday’s Diamondbacks-Phillies pitching matchup
Diamondbacks RHP Zac Gallen (6-2, 2.95) vs. Phillies LHP Ranger Suarez (0-1, 10.50).
Gallen is coming off one of the worst outings of his major league career last week in Pittsburgh, where he gave up eight runs (five earned) in 3 2/3 innings. Seven of those runs came in the fourth, the most runs he has allowed in an inning in his career. … It snapped what had been an overwhelming dominant stretch in which he posted a 1.16 ERA over his previous seven starts. … Gallen struggled against the Phillies in Philadelphia last season, giving up six runs (four earned) in 1 2/3 innings. That was the shortest outing of his career. … Suarez missed the start of the year due to an elbow issue. He has made two starts since coming back from the injured list, not posting particularly good results in either of them. … Suarez averages about 93 mph with his fastball. He also throws a change-up, curveball and cutter. He has yet to allow a hit on his curveball this year, getting whiffs 45.5 percent of the time.
