The Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Miami Marlins 5-0 on Sunday afternoon at loanDepot Park. Zac Gallen pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out seven and walking one, to earn the win. Corbin Carroll hit a solo home run for the Diamondbacks, who won their second straight game.
Sandy Alcantara (1-2) had a second consecutive outing, where he looked to be a bit off his game. Alcantara allowed five runs and seven hits in his six innings of work. The reigning Cy Young struck out nine, but things unraveled in a rough final inning on the mound. The D-Backs plated four runs that frame, to end Alcantara’s day early.
Gallen (2-1) retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced, and he didn’t allow a runner to reach second base until the seventh inning. He allowed just two hits and a walk in his seven innings of work.
The Diamondbacks took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Carroll’s home run to left field. It was Carroll’s second home run of the season.
The Marlins (8-8) were held to just four hits by the Diamondbacks pitching staff.
