New Orleans Baby Cakes pitcher Zac Gallen looked dominant on Wednesday night at Wolff Stadium.

Actually, the 6-foot-3 right-hander looked about the same as he has all season.

Gallen pitched seven innings and gave up one run on two hits with seven strikeouts and three walks. Gallen (5-0) got the win in the Baby Cakes’ 5-2 victory over the San Antonio Missions.

Gallen has allowed either one or zero runs in five of his seven starts this season. He gave up two runs in his other two starts.

The third-round draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016 has been so strong this season that by giving up one run to the Missions, his ERA went up from 1.19 to 1.24. Gallen is the No. 18 prospect in the Marlins organization, according to MLB.com.
