Corbin (4-9) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings, but received no decision Tuesday at the Brewers. Corbin allowed three runs in the first inning, and settled down before giving up a run in the sixth inning that broke a 3-3 tie, but the offense scored late to take him off the hook for a possible loss. Opponents have now scored at least four runs off him in each of his last six starts, and his ERA is at a season-high 5.31. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Dodgers.
Corbin (4-9) lasted 5.2 innings, allowing six runs (five earned), nine hits and two walks while striking out four Jays in Wednesday's loss. Corbin's day started with a Josh Donaldson splash-landing in the Chase Field swimming pool during the first frame. After five pitches, Corbin found himself in a 2-0 hole that foreshadowed the rest of his day. The lefty is now 0-7 at home, but at least his next start on Monday will be in Milwaukee.
Corbin will start Friday's game against the Dodgers. Corbin will take the ball for the Diamondbacks' first game of the second half Friday due to a lack of available arms at the top of the rotation with Zack Greinke (oblique) sidelined and Shelby Miller sent down to Triple-A. The left-handed Corbin has yet to truly get into a rhythm on the hill thus far this season, and he has traditionally worn down as the season progresses given his career 4.42 ERA and 1.338 WHIP in the second half. He'll be opposed by Bud Norris on Friday.
Corbin was shelled for six runs on seven hits and five walks Sunday in just 4.1 innings versus the Rockies. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision. Corbin simply couldn't find his command Sunday, as he tied a season-high in walks and threw a feeble 50% of his pitches for strikes. He had delivered quality starts in three of his previous four starts prior to Sunday, but his ERA still sits at an unimpressive 4.99 on the season. Corbin has yet to resemble his pre-Tommy John surgery self this season and will be a shaky fantasy play in his next start Saturday at home to the Giants.
Corbin (4-6) allowed two runs on eight hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 6.1 innings in a win Tuesday over the Blue Jays. Corbin was putting baserunners on with regularity but only paid for it once, when Kevin Pillar hit a two-run double in the fourth inning. He used two double plays to escape jams and induced 13 overall groundouts. That should help him avoid the home runs that have been his Achilles heel -- he has given up 13 in 15 starts. Corbin has a 52.6 percent ground ball rate on the season and we should expect his 4.63 ERA to keep falling if he can continue to keep the ball in the ballpark like he did Tuesday night.
