"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."
"It's not a good way to pitch, but I'm just glad we came away with the win."
"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."
Daily Diamondback Digest
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.
It started with the first game in franchise history, and has been 16 years in the making. Greg Schulte, the radio play-by-play announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks called his 2,500th game for the team Wednesday night in Los Angeles, a 4-2 win over the division leading rivals.
