’28 consecutive scoreless innings’ Gallon’s run ‘This time it’s Cy Young?’

Zach Gallen (28, Arizona Diamondbacks), who recorded 7th all-time record last year with 44 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings, is sprinting again.

Arizona had a home game against the Kansas City Royals at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time).

Galen, who started as Arizona’s starting pitcher that day, threw 97 pitches (62 strikes) in 6 1/3 innings, giving up four hits and no runs. 12 strikeouts.

Arizona won 2-0, thanks to Galen’s good pitching, salvation in 3 2/3 scoreless innings, Evan Longoria in the 4th inning, and Emmanuel Rivera’s timely hits in the 6th inning.

With this, Gallen recorded 4 wins and 1 loss and an average ERA of 2.15 in 6 games for the season. He also became the sole major league leader in strikeouts with 51.

What is surprising is the streak of unbeaten records. Gallen has not given up a run since the last inning against the San Diego Padres on the 5th. 28 consecutive scoreless innings already.

7 scoreless innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 11th;

In addition, Galen recorded 11 strikeouts against Milwaukee on the 11th, 7 strikeouts against Miami on the 17th, and 11 strikeouts against San Diego on the 22nd.

Gallen, on the other hand, gave up just two walks in the span. 41 strikeouts – 2 walks. It is a ratio that can only be described by words as amazing. ㅋㅋㅋ벳

After finishing 9th in the National League Cy Young Award with an ERA of 2.75 in the shortened 2020 season, Gallen was reborn as Arizona’s ace last year and ranked 5th in the Cy Young Award.

This season, he was sluggish with 10 runs (9 earned runs) in 10 2/3 innings in the first two games, but has been showing a near-perfect appearance in the following 4 games.

After 44 1/3 scoreless innings last year, Galen has already gone nearly 30 scoreless innings this season. It is expected that he may aim for Cy Young this fall.
