Corbin held the Cardinals to one run on six hits and two walks with six hits through six innings but was left with a no-decision Wednesday.
Corbin was on point, as he induced 13 swinging strikes in nine groundball outs in his third straight quality start. In that span, Corbin has thrown 20 innings with 23 strikeouts against just three walks with two runs allowed. His slider was particularly on point Wednesday, as it induced 10 swinging strikes on just 37 offerings. He'll take a 3.05 ERA into his next outing Tuesday against the Rockies.
Corbin didn't factor into the decision against the Giants on Friday, despite a strong outing that saw him yield just one earned run on four hits over six innings, while striking out five and walking one in a 2-1 defeat for the Diamondbacks.
Corbin certainly pitched well enough in this contest to get his seventh win of the season, but he would have to settle for the no-decision as his teammates couldn't generate much run support for him against Andrew Suarez. Still, it's been an encouraging bounce-back for Corbin, who has rebounded over his last two starts coming off a stretch where he had given up at least five earned runs in three of his last four outings. He's now given up just one earned run and posted a 17:1 K:BB over his last 13 innings, bringing his ERA down to 3.14 and his WHIP to 0.99 through 106 innings on the season. Both of those would represent career bests by a wide margin for the left-hander if he's able to maintain the pace.
This was a much-needed rebound after back-to-back outings of five runs allowed. Corbin's gem, however, failed to lock him into a win as Ivan Nova matched his scoreless effort through eight. There've been concerns about his velocity of late, and his recent slump might've added more fuel to that issue. Still, on the whole, Corbin has shined, and this cleans up his ERA to 3.24, and he's dazzled with 11.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 93 innings. He'll hold similar upside to this affair in his next scheduled outing, which'll come Wednesday at the Marlins.
Corbin (6-3) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Saturday against the Mets.
Corbin allowed a three-run home run to Michael Conforto in the second inning, the big blow of his start. His velocity remained down -- continuing the trend of his last several starts -- with his maximum four-seam fastball velocity checking in at 92 mph with the average falling in at 90.4 mph. While he was initially able to maintain his results with diminished velocity, batters seem to have caught up to him as he has now allowed 17 earned runs in 23.2 innings across his last four starts.
Corbin allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a no-decision Monday against Pittsburgh.
One of Corbin's walks was intentional, but he was inconsistent all night long. His misses in the zone were worse than his misses out of the zone, as three of the six hits he allowed were doubles, including a two-run double by Austin Meadows as part of the four-run fifth inning that ruined Corbin's night. Corbin still owns a 3.10 ERA with a brilliant 110:25 K:BB, and he'll get a good chance to right the ship his next time out Saturday against the Mets.
