Eduardo Escobar added his seventh homer to make it 6-0 in the third.
Smyly, who came off the injured list Saturday after missing six games with left elbow inflammation, went four innings.
In the first game, Gallen (1-0) struck out six, walked two and hit a batter.
Gallen found out after the game that he wouldn’t have qualified for an official no-hitter in a seven-inning game.
“It wouldn’t have counted, so that makes me feel better that it wasn’t actually a no-hitter anyway,” the 29-year-old righty said. “The complete-game shutout, I guess, works. That’s fine. We won. It really doesn’t matter. That’s the most important part.”
Gallen, who finished ninth in the NL Cy Young Award voting last year, threw his first complete game in 30 major league starts.
Arizona has won six of seven and seven of 10. The Diamondbacks went 7-3 on their road trip.
Stephen Vogt and Kole Calhoun homered off Bryse Wilson (1-1).
Ronald Acuña Jr. was hit in the left hand by a pitch in the first. … Braves LHP Max Fried, placed on injured list April 14 with a right hamstring strain, threw a side session and is getting closer to his return.
