National League Game Summary - Philadelphia at Arizona
(Thursday, May 9th)
Final Score: Arizona 2, Philadelphia 1
Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Patrick Corbin scattered four hits over 6 1/3 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the Philadelphia Phillies, 2-1, in the opener of a four-game set at Chase Field.
Corbin (5-0) surrendered just one run and struck out four to win his third straight start. Heath Bell stranded a runner in the ninth to earn his fourth save.
Corbin also drove in a run and Gerardo Parra added two hits and an RBI for the Diamondbacks, winners in four straight.
"I'm glad we came out with a win today. I just want to keep going, we've got a nice little streak going the with team, and I just wanted to keep that up," Corbin said.
Kevin Frandsen drove in the lone run for the Phillies, who saw starter Cole Hamels (1-5) give up two runs on six hits and five walks to drop his second straight start.
"I am able to execute a lot of pitches the right way, then ultimately put a little too much pressure on trying to do that," Hamels said.
Martin Prado scored on Corbin's groundout in the fifth inning to put Arizona up 1-0.
With runners on second and third in the sixth, Parra pushed a bunt up the first base line, allowing Cody Ross to score.
The Phillies loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but were only able to push one run across. Frandsen hit a soft line drive over second baseman Cliff Pennington's head, which was enough to score Domonic Brown. Parra, though, gunned down John Mayberry at second on the play. Rollins followed with a pop out to short stop Didi Gregorius to end the threat.
Brown ripped a one-out double in the ninth inning, but Bell was able to retire the next to batters to preserve the win.
Corbin is the first D'backs pitcher to start 5-0 since Brandon Webb went 9-0 in 2008 ... Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt had a three-game homer streak snapped ... The D'backs are 14-3 when leading after six innings ... Charlie Manuel passed Gene Mauch for the most games managed in franchise history (1,332 games) ... Hamels has allowed just 11 earned runs over his last six starts ... After the game, the Phillies announced that they will recall pitcher Tyler Cloyd from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. Cloyd, who will start Friday, is replacing Roy Halladay in the rotation. Halladay was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.
