Patrick Corbin may not receive the type of publicity normally reserved for an unbeaten starter with his success, but the Arizona Diamondbacks are well aware of how spectacular he's pitched. Arizona has won each of Corbin's eight starts this season, and it will look to end the host Colorado Rockies' three-game winning streak Monday night. Corbin (6-0, 1.52 ERA) has tossed at least six innings and allowed two or fewer runs in each of his outings. His ERA ranks third in the majors after he overcame a career-worst five walks and allowed only three hits in seven innings of Tuesday's 2-0 win over Atlanta. He has won four consecutive starts, and the Diamondbacks (25-19) have won 10 of his last 11 outings dating back to last season. "Our job is to go out there and we don't want to lose," said Corbin, who joined Randy Johnson as the only left-handers in franchise history to start a season winning at least six straight decisions. ''I feel good and I ...

Collmenter makes perhaps catch of the year

The 2-1 putout isn't a common one in baseball; most of the ones that do occur are on wild pitchespassed balls that result in the pitcher covering the plate. So how does a pitcher record a 2-1 putout on a ball that never touches the ground? Diamondbacks reliever Josh Collmenter did just that in Sunday's game against the Marlins -- with an assist (literally) from catcher Miguel...

Patrick Corbin Looks For His Seventh Win

The Arizona Diamondbacks have become known for their under-the-radar pitching staff these last few years. Whether it was Ian Kennedy’s break-out 2011 season, Wade Miley’s ROY-runner up 2012 season, or Patrick Corbin’s 6-0 start this season (hopefully that becomes 7-0 after tonight’s game). They don’t all have the skills of Justin Verlander, or the super-star status of players...

Going...Going...Gone! Arizona Diamondbacks Gerardo Parra Now Has Something in Common With Pete Rose

Arizona's 1-0 win over the Miami Marlins gave the Diamondbacks a record of 25-18 and a one game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West.

D-backs look to finish off sweep, win fifth straight

Facing an offensively challenged Miami team that's been particularly bad against left-handers lately, Wade Miley appears to be in a good spot to rebound from his worst outing of the season.
