"This last month has been difficult for me, and it's something I want to get over," Corbin said. "But at the end of the season when I get home, I'll look back and try to get better to make sure this doesn't happen next year. I have to stay strong through the course of the year. That's something I want to improve on."

"It has been frustrating not being able to get in a rhythm," D-backs outfielder A.J. Pollock said. "We feel we're a playoff team. We have some guys on this team that are great ballplayers. But we have two games left, and we want to finish strong. You want to run into the off-season with some momentum to build off of."
