Associated Press - Patrick Corbin has been outstanding this season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The left-hander put together another strong start and drove in a run to help lead the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Thursday night.
Corbin (5-0) pitched 6 1/3 innings and scattered four hits, allowing one run to lower his ERA to 1.75. He became the first pitcher to throw at least six innings and allow two or fewer runs in his first seven starts of the season since Ubaldo Jimenez had 12 straight such outings for the Colorado Rockies in 2010.
Dan Haren had held the Diamondbacks mark with six such starts in 2009. After trading zeros with Hamels through the first four innings, Corbin gave the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead in the fifth. After Martin Prado and Gerardo Parra started the inning with consecutive singles and Cliff Pennington hit a soft bouncer back to Hamels, Corbin drove in Prado on an RBI groundout to short.
Arizona made it 2-0 in the sixth. Cody Ross doubled to left, Miguel Montero walked and Prado reached on a fielder's choice with Ross moving to third. Parra's swinging bunt along the first-base line allowed Ross to sprint home.
