Associated Press - The Arizona Diamondbacks scored their only runs with the help of an infield double. The way Patrick Corbin pitched Tuesday night, that was all they needed.
Corbin allowed three hits in seven innings and joined Randy Johnson as the only left-handers in team history to win their first six starts, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 2-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Corbin (6-0) was certainly wild at times, walking five and going into deep counts on seemingly every batter. He managed to miss in the right spots, though, and induced three double plays while striking out five in his career-best sixth straight win.
The young left-hander also helped keep Braves slugger Justin Upton in check after his impressive performance the night before and became the first Diamondbacks pitcher to start 6-0 since Brandon Webb won nine straight decisions in 2008.
Johnson won his first six starts in 2001 and went 7-0 in 2000, putting Corbin in the same company as a five-time Cy Young Award winner. Julio Teheran (2-1) matched Corbin most of the way, but crossed signals with first baseman Freddie Freeman on Gerardo Parra's infield double in the third inning. Didi Gregorius, who made some stellar plays at shortstop behind Corbin, followed with a two-run single.
That turned about to be enough against the Braves, who had four hits -- two by Reed Johnson -- and went 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position to lose for the fourth time in five games.
Atlanta was shut out by Arizona for the first time since May 16, 2009, and the first time at Chase Field since May 20, 2006.
