Patrick Corbin IS All That, Ks 10 In D-Backs Win

 Arizona Diamondbacks newsCoors Field is not exactly a pitcher’s paradise, unless you’re Patrick Corbin. Corbin struck out 10 batters, allowing one run, and walked one in a complete-game victory over the Colorado Rockies.

Corbin needed only 97 pitches for the win and 74 of those were strikes. He lowered his ERA to 1.44  and improved his record to 7-0  on the season an joins Randy Johnson as the only left-handers in team history to start the season 7-0.

He is one of only five undefeated  starting pitchers with a minimum of eight starts along with  Matt Moore (8-0), Clay Buchholz (6-0), Matt Harvey (5-0) and Max Scherzer (5-0).

Corbin effectively kept Rockies hitters off balance all night using a slider and a  fastball.  The Rockies were without a hit until Troy Tulowitzki‘s single up the middle in the fourth.

It remained that way until the eighth inning when Nolan Arenado doubled and scored when Jordan Pacheco delivered a pinch-hit double.  John Garland started for the Rockies and gave up five runs over six innings.
