"I don't change my game plan, but it's a good pitcher's park. Everybody knows that. I wouldn't say that's the only reason we've had success, but it seems like one guy here pitches well and you want to outdo him the next day. Rubby [De La Rosa] did a great job yesterday and hopefully we can come out tomorrow and continue it."

Patrick Corbin pitched seven sharp innings and helped his own cause with an RBI single, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 6-0 on Saturday. Ender Inciarte had three hits and two RBIs, while David Peralta and A.J. Pollock added three hits apiece for Arizona. The Diamondbacks have won four of their last five games against the defending World Series champs and five straight at AT&T Park.
The numbers are bordering on the unbelievable. The Diamondbacks not only are 8-1 against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park this season, they have won five of those games via shutout, have allowed a total of 13 runs and, after their 6-0 win on Saturday afternoon, are riding a 30-inning scoreless streak in this park.
AT&T Park is known to be pitcher-friendly, but the D-backs are taking it to an extreme. They beat the Giants, 6-0, on Saturday to increase their streak of scoreless innings at the ballpark to 30, dating back to June 13.
Slow news day.
The 40-year-old Hudson, who has announced that he will retire after this season, will make one of his last few Major League appearances on Sunday when he confronts Hellickson, 28, and the D-backs in the finale of a three-game series. Arizona has outscored San Francisco, 8-0, in this series and has posted three straight shutouts -- and five in nine games -- at AT&T Park this season.
