Snake Bytes 9/12: Righting the Ship

After dropping the first two against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, Patrick Corbin took the mound for the Diamondbacks in the final game of the series. The Diamondbacks took advantage of a rusty start by Dodgers' starter Hyun-Jin Ryu and the bullpen nailed down the save, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 4-1 victory in Chavez Ravine.

Quick Quotes

"I mean, just a couple of bad outings," Corbin said. "I don't think there was a need to panic or anything. I know it's really my first full season up here and my innings are adding up, but my body feels healthy. I feel fine and I just want to see how it is to go a full season, get as many innings as I can and try to build off it for next year and throw more."

Patrick Corbin

"It's not a good way to pitch, but I'm just glad we came away with the win."

Patrick Corbin

"I come to the field every day ready to play and when you see your name in the lineup it's a lot of fun."

Diamondbacks Beat Dodgers Behind Corbin, Bullpen

Any questions about Patrick Corbin being fatigued at the end of the season were likely put to rest Wednesday evening as the southpaw followed up his complete game against San Francisco with six and a third innings of one-run ball against the Dodgers. Though he allowed ten hits and two walks, he managed to limit the damage to a solo home run by Yasiel Puig in the seventh. David Hernandez pitched a clean eighth inning, making it five consecutive scoreless outings since returning to the majors after an early-August demotion.
