Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zac Gallen is making waves in the MLB world with his impressive performances on the mound. The 25-year-old right-hander has been a star of the season so far, and he lived up to expectations once again in Wednesday's game against the Kansas City Royals. In that game, Gallen pitched 6.1 innings, giving up just four hits and striking out a season-high 12 batters. His incredible form means that he has now thrown 28 consecutive scoreless innings, the longest active streak in the MLB, which has helped him to lead all pitchers in strikeouts with 51. Gallen's success this season didn't come out of the blue. He was also impressive in 2020, finishing the year with a 12-4 record, a 2.54 ERA, and 192 strikeouts. This consistency has put him in the running for the National League Cy Young Award, provided he can maintain his current level of performance throughout the rest of the season. Fans of the Arizona Diamondbacks are thrilled with Gallen's form and their team's overall performance. The team's record now stands at 14-12, and they are tied for first place in the National League West with the Los Angeles Dodgers. If the Diamondbacks continue to play like this, they could potentially make the postseason for the first time since 2017. In addition to Gallen's dynamic pitching, the Diamondbacks have also seen impressive performances from other key players this season. Newcomer Lourdes Gurriel Jr. provides a source of power in the middle of their lineup, while rookie Corbin Carroll has lived up to expectations since being called up late last season. Carroll's form puts him in contention for the NL Rookie of the Year Award alongside other top prospects. All in all, there is excitement brewing in the Diamondbacks' camp, and they will be looking to build on their current momentum in the coming weeks. For fans of the team, there is much to be hopeful about, especially with Zac Gallen leading the charge on the mound.
