CORBIN PITCHED EIGHT INNINGS IN DIAMONDBACKS’ VICTORY
Tue, 18 Sep 2012 08:42 PM EDT

About the only thing Arizona Diamondbacks rookie left-hander Patrick Corbin couldn’t do was talk himself into a complete game.

“You never need to come out of a game, particularly when you’re throwing well, but I understand,” Corbin said after pitching a career-high 8 innings and driving in 4 runs in the Arizona Diamondbacks” 10-2 victory over Giants.

“Maybe in one or two years I’m going to say something to Gibby (manager Kirk Gibson).”

Corbin’s bases-loaded triple broke a 2-2 tie in a 5-run 4th inning, and he singled in a run in the 7th. They were his 1st career RBIs.

Corbin (6-7) gave up 8 hits and struck out 5 to stop the National League West-leading S.F. Giants from a 3-game sweep. He broke a 3-game unlucky streak while thrashing the Giants for the 2nd time at Chase Field this season.

“He pitched to each side of the plate. He had a little run with his fastball, mixed the changeup in and threw the slier when he needed to as well,” related Giants MVP candidate Buster Posey, who singled in a run in the 1st inning off Corbin and also drew a walk. Basketball betting lines

The San Francisco Giants (83-63) maintained a 7 1/2-game lead over the L. A. Dodgers in the National League West with 16 games to play when the Dodgers’ lost to St. Louis 5-2 in 12 innings on Sunday. St. Louis (77-70) has a one-game lead over the Dodgers for the 2nd National League wild card while the D-backs (72-74) remained 4 1/2 games behind in the wild card race. The D-backs must pass 5 groups in the last 2 1/2 weeks to reach the postseason.

Right fielder Justin Upton drove in 3 runs for the D-backs with a 2-run double in the 3rd inning and a bases-empty home run in the 6th inning, his 15th homer of the season. He also homered in the S.F. Giants’ 3-2 victory Saturday.

San Francisco center fielder Angel Pagan singled doubled and scored. Since Aug. 15, Pagan is hitting .333 with 11 doubles, 6 triples and 11 RBIs. The Giants are 19-10 in that stretch.

Aaron Hill had 2 hits, including a 2-run double to cap the 5-run 4th inning. Paul Goldschmidt reached on an infield blunder to open the inning before Cody Ransom doubled and Gerardo Parra was intentionally walked.

Leadoff hitter Adam Eaton singled and walked 3 times, scoring after walks in the 3rd and 4th innings, when the D-backs scored 7 runs off S.F. Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong (12-9). Eaton has reached base thru hit or walk in 9 of his Ten games since joining the team from Class AAA Reno on Sept. 4. Vogelsong is winless in 3 starts against the D-backs this season, giving up 13 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings.

“I cannot say I missed location today. The only pitch I missed location was Upton’s 1st double,” Vogelsong asserted. “On Corbin’s (triple), I just spotted it in the middle. The balls came out good; that is why it is getting confusing. My stuff is there. It just doesn’t make much sense right now.”

Vogelsong has given up 20 earned runs in his last in 18 2/3 innings.
