Found July 28, 2013 on Fox Sports Arizona:
The Padres' offense has been feast or famine of late. The Diamondbacks are hoping Patrick Corbin can make it more of the latter. Corbin looks to continue his recent dominance and beat the Padres for the third time in as many meetings this season Sunday. San Diego (47-58) has alternated wins and losses over the past five games, batting .345 with 28 runs in those three victories and .131 with one run in the defeats. That disparity has been on display in this series at Chase Field, as the Padres had three homers in Saturday's 12-3 win after being held to three hits in a 10-0 loss in the series opener. Corbin (12-1, 2.31 ERA) will try to quiet the Padres' bats again. The left-hander has won both starts against them this season, yielding five runs -- four earned -- in 13 innings. He enters this matchup in impressive form, having won three straight starts, all at home, behind a 1.31 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 20 23 innings. Corbin battled through his latest outing Tuesday, ...

Diamondbacks steamroll Padres behind Randall Delgado

Maybe, finally, this team has found it. It’s seemed several times this week that the Diamondbacks may be headed toward a breakthrough and it was obvious that something went right in a convincing 10-0 win over San Diego Friday night.

Brandon McCarthy and Trevor Cahill near returns

Just as the starting rotation is almost back to being a strength of the Diamondbacks, they’ll get even more help with the returns of Brandon McCarthy and Trevor Cahill soon.

While You Were Drinking: Game 104 (SD vs AZ)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night drinking at the pub.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
