  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Logs quality start

    Corbin (9-16) got the loss Tuesday versus the Rockies after giving up two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out nine over six innings.

    The left-hander allowed one run to score in the fourth inning before surrendering a solo home run to Trevor Story in the fifth. It was his second consecutive quality start and fourth in his last five outings. He struck out a season-high nine batters. He isn't expected to make another start in 2021, finishing 9-16 with a career-worst 5.82 ERA over 31 starts.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Won't pitch again in 2021

    Corbin won't pitch again this season due to a blister on his finger, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Corbin finished the 2021 campaign with a pair of quality starts, but manager Dave Martinez revealed Wednesday that the left-hander has been dealing with a blister. As a result, he'll be held out for the remainder of the year rather than pitching during the final series of the season. The 32-year-old made 31 starts in 2021 and posted a career-worst 5.82 ERA with a 143:60 K:BB and 1.47 WHIP in 171.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Whiffs seven in win

    Corbin (9-15) fired 6.2 scoreless innings, allowing four hits and four walks while striking out seven to earn the win over the Reds on Thursday.

    Corbin didn't give up any runs for just the second time this season. The only extra-base hit he allowed was a double by Delino DeShields. Prior to Thursday, he'd been roughed up for a 7.96 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 26 innings over his previous five starts. The 31-year-old has a 5.92 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 134 strikeouts in 165.2 innings this season.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Goes seven innings in win

    Corbin (8-14) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out four and earning a win over the Pirates.

    Corbin kept Pittsburgh in check for most of the afternoon, and both runs scored against him came via sacrifices. He also retired the last 13 batters he faced while picking up just his second win over his last 11 starts. The 32-year-old southpaw brought his season ERA down to 5.98 alongside a 122:50 K:BB. Corbin is projected to face the Rockies at home next weekend.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Provides quality start Monday

    Corbin didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 4-3 win over the Mets, allowing three runs on 11 hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out four.

    The lefty threw 114 pitches (73 strikes) in his 10th quality start of the season, but Corbin exited on the hook for his 15th loss until the Nats rallied in the ninth inning. It's only the second time in 10 starts since the All-Star break he's given up fewer than four runs, and Corbin will carry a 6.14 ERA and 118:48 K:BB through 148 innings into his next outing.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Tagged for six runs

    Corbin (7-14) took the loss Tuesday against the Phillies after surrendering six runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out four across five innings.

    Corbin got off to a strong start, blanking the Phillies through three frames before they unloaded. Once again, Corbin was victimized by the long ball, allowing homers to Andrew McCutchen and Rafael Marchan, bringing his season allowance to 33, the most in the majors. The 32-year-old departed the game with a 6.19 ERA, the worst in MLB among qualifying pitchers. Meanwhile, Corbin has earned a win just once in his last nine starts. The lefty projects to take the mound again Monday against the Mets.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Knocked around by Marlins

    Corbin (7-13) gave up six runs on four hits and a pair of walks over three innings in Thursday's loss to Miami. He registered three strikeouts.

    Miami got to Corbin early and often in this one, tagging the veteran hurler for four runs in the first inning and two more in the second. Corbin was victimized by the long ball, giving up a three-run shot to Jorge Alfaro and a two-run blast to Miguel Rojas. Corbin has won just once in his last eight starts and has given up four-plus runs in all but one of those outings. He'll take a bloated 6.09 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into his next scheduled start.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Dominant against Brewers

    Corbin (7-12) allowed one run on three hits while striking out seven batters over 6.1 innings in a win over the Brewers on Friday.

    Corbin was making quick work of the Brewers, firing off six shutout innings before Avisail Garcia eventually got to him with a solo homer with one out in the seventh. The 31-year-old southpaw's night ended there -- an admirable performance after he's endured so many struggles throughout the season. Corbin had entered Friday with six straight outings allowing four runs or more, so it was encouraging to see him have a bounce-back performance against a first-place team. He now owns a 5.82 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 107:41 K:BB over 133 innings and is set up for a favorable matchup against the Marlins next week.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Confirmed as Friday's starter

    Corbin will be the starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Brewers, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    While Corbin has long lined up to take the ball Friday, the club took until just a few hours before first pitch to confirm his as the starter for the series opener. The veteran southpaw is in the midst of a down season in which he's posted a 6.04 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 126.2 innings, but he seems extremely unlikely to lose his spot in the starting rotation given his resume and contract, and Washington's lack of other options.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Takes loss against Atlanta

    Corbin (6-12) was tagged with the loss Saturday against Atlanta after allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks while fanning five across 4.2 innings.

    The veteran 32-year-old hurler continues to struggle and has been unable to repeat the strong performances he's had in past years with the Nationals. In fact, his 6.04 ERA would rank as a career-worst mark for him, and he has been pitching awfully of late with four or more runs allowed in six straight appearances. He owns a 7.83 ERA during that six-game stretch.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Gives up two homers in loss

    Corbin (6-11) allowed five runs on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Atlanta.

    The 32-year-old gave up two-run home runs to Ozzie Albies and Adam Duvall in the contest, the latter ultimately enough to saddle him with a loss. Corbin has now allowed at least four runs in five straight starts while yielding nine homers in that span. He has an uninspiring 5.83 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 95:39 K:BB through 122 innings across 22 starts. The southpaw is projected to make his next start at home in a rematch with Atlanta next weekend.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Fans eight in loss

    Corbin (6-10) took the loss against the Phillies on Tuesday after yielding four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight across seven innings.

    While he was able to miss a decent number of bats, Corbin fell victim to the long ball once again, surrendering three homers for the second straight game. The 32-year-old has now allowed at least four earned runs in five of his last six outings, taking the loss in four of those games. Corbin, who has pitched to the tune of a 5.74 ERA and 1.44 WHIP this season, is slated to take the mound again Sunday at Atlanta.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Hurls five innings in no-decision

    Corbin didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Phillies, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk across five innings. He struck out two.

    Corbin had issues with the long ball and gave up homers to Rhys Hoskins, Andrew McCutchen and Alec Bohm, but the struggles of Phillies starter Cristopher Sanchez allowed Corbin to avoid what would've been his 10th loss of the season. The veteran lefty has been pitching poorly of late, and he has allowed at least four earned runs in four of his last five outings while posting a 7.18 ERA across 26.1 innings during that stretch.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Starting Game 2 of twin bill

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Corbin would start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Corbin will end up being pushed back one day in the pitching schedule after he was initially on tap to start Wednesday before the contest was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns within the Washington organization. Through his first two starts of the second half, Corbin has been lit up for 11 runs (10 earned) over 10.2 innings to bring his ERA up to 5.71 on the season. With Corbin in the third season of a six-year, $140 million contract and in the midst of a brutal campaign, he's unlikely to command much trade interest from contending clubs ahead of Friday's deadline.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Wednesday's start postponed

    Corbin won't start Wednesday against the Phillies since the game was postponed due to the Nationals' COVID-19 outbreak, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Trea Turner tested positive for the virus Tuesday and was removed during the first inning, and Washington has apparently had multiple players and coaches test positive. It remains to be seen who else is caught up in the outbreak. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Thursday, and Corbin should start one of those games, assuming he's available.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Charged with ninth loss

    Corbin (6-9) allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out four in 5.1 innings to take the loss against the Orioles on Friday.

    Corbin tossed three scoreless frames to begin Friday's contest, but he struggled to contain the Orioles' offense after the third inning. The southpaw picked up a win in his final start before the All-Star break, but he's now given up at least five runs in each of his last two outings, and he's been charged with losses in four of his last five appearances. Corbin tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Philadelphia on Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Secures sixth victory

    Corbin (6-7) earned the win over San Diego on Wednesday, tossing six innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three.

    The southpaw didn't dominate in the contest -- he threw only 66 of 106 pitches for strikes and did not record a single 1-2-3 inning -- but he did enough to notch both a quality start and the win. The victory snapped a two-start losing streak and pushed his record to 6-7 on the season. Corbin finished the first half of the campaign with a disappointing 5.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 7.0 K/9. He isn't likely to pitch again until Washington's series at home against San Diego immediately following the All-Star break.
