Phillies Nipped By Diamondbacks
Patrick Corbin threw six-plus strong innings and drove in a run to help lead the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Thursday night.
Corbin (5-0) scattered four hits over 6 1-3 innings and allowed one run to lower his ERA to 1.75. The left-hander became the first pitcher to throw at least six innings and allow two or fewer runs in his first seven starts of the season since Ubaldo Jimenez had 12 straight such outings for the Colorado Rockies in 2010.
Cole Hamels (1-5) saw his control disappear for the second time in three games. Hamels gave up two runs on six hits, walked five and struck out three.
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel set a franchise record with his 1,332nd game as the club’s skipper, passing Gene Mauch for the most in team history.
