Corbin (0-6) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five in six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Astros. Corbin held the Mets scoreless in five innings during his last outing and held the Astros without a run over the first four frames in Sunday's matchup. However, he gave up three homers over the next three innings and took his sixth loss in eight starts this season. The 32-year-old now has a 6.28 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 38.2 innings to begin the year. Corbin tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Milwaukee on Saturday.
Corbin didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Mets, giving up three hits and four walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out five. The veteran southpaw wasn't efficient, tossing 51 of 86 pitches for strikes before exiting, but he left the game with a 2-0 lead only to watch the Washington bullpen cough it up. Corbin has looked much better over his last three starts with a 2.37 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB through 19 innings, but his poor 19.9 percent strikeout rate and career-worst 10.9 percent walk rate on the season indicate how thin his margin for error can be.
Corbin (0-5) suffered the loss against Colorado on Wednesday, completing eight innings during which he allowed five runs (three earned) on nine hits and no walks while striking out three. It was an odd stat line for the veteran hurler, as he made it through eight innings on only 94 pitches despite allowing a fair amount of traffic on the bases. The efficiency was largely due to Corbin's good control -- he did not walk any batters after issuing multiple free passes in each of his first five starts this season. All of the damage against him was done in the fourth inning, when the Rockies racked up five runs on four hits and benefitted from a fielding error. To Corbin's credit, he bounced back strongly from that frame, allowing only two hits the rest of the way and retiring the final nine batters he faced. The southpaw has been better of late, but he still owns an ugly 7.16 ERA on the season, and he's tentatively lined up to next face the Mets at home early next week.
Corbin (0-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out eight across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Marlins. Corbin turned in his longest outing of the season and picked up an impressive 14 swinging strikes on 90 pitches. He allowed only one unearned run through six innings, but he came out to begin the seventh frame and both runners he faced reached base and ultimately came around to score. Despite the positive start, Corbin has now walked multiple batters in every appearance this season and has a 23:13 K:BB across 19.2 innings to go along with an 8.69 ERA.
Corbin (0-3) allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks over 1.2 innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Giants. All seven runs against Corbin crossed home during the second inning. Most of the damage came from Austin Slater's three-run homer followed by Brandon Crawford's three-run double that knocked him from the game. The 32-year-old southpaw is now sporting a brutal 11.20 ERA through four starts this season. Corbin is currently lined up for a rematch with the Giants next week in San Francisco.
