Gallen, ranked as the 27th best starting pitcher in MLB according to our advanced-stat Power Rankings, has had an impressive season. In 34 starts, he has recorded a 17-9 win/loss record with a 3.47 ERA. However, his 4.16 xERA suggests that he may have been lucky this year and could potentially perform worse going forward.
On the other hand, Eovaldi, ranked 86th in the Power Rankings, has started 25 games this year and boasts a 12-5 win/loss record with a 3.63 ERA. Similar to Gallen, his 4.18 SIERA indicates that he may have been fortunate this season and could see a decline in performance.
The Diamondbacks offense ranks 17th in MLB, while the Rangers offense is ranked 3rd. The Rangers have excelled in team batting average and home runs, ranking 2nd and 5th respectively. However, their stolen bases rank 25th, which is a weakness in their offensive game.
In their last game, the Diamondbacks played against an unknown opponent, while the Rangers faced an unidentified team as well. Unfortunately, the specific details of these games are not provided.
Looking at the projections, Gallen is expected to pitch an average of 5.1 innings, allowing 2.3 earned runs and striking out 5.3 batters. However, he is projected to give up 4.9 hits and walks, which is considered below average.
Eovaldi, on the other hand, is projected to pitch 4.9 innings, allowing 2.6 earned runs and striking out 4.4 batters. His hits and walks projections are also high, with 5.2 hits and walks on average.
While the Rangers have a strong offense, Gallen's low-walk pitching style may neutralize their patient approach at the plate. This could give the Diamondbacks an advantage in the matchup.

The Diamondbacks will look to capitalize on their solid pitching and average-ranked offense, while the Rangers will aim to showcase their powerful lineup.
