Corbin pitches Diamondbacks to 2-0 win over Braves

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Patrick Corbin allowed three hits in seven innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks turned an infield double into two runs to beat the Atlanta Braves 2-0 Tuesday night.

Corbin (6-0) worked around five walks by inducing three double plays and struck out five to win his career-high sixth straight game. He is the first Diamondbacks pitcher to start 6-0 since Brandon Webb won nine straight in 2008.

Corbin also helped keep Braves slugger Justin Upton in check after his impressive performance the night before and Heath Bell worked around an error in the ninth for his fifth save in the combined four-hitter.

Julio Teheran (2-1) matched Corbin most of the way, but crossed signals with first baseman Freddie Freeman on Gerardo Parra's infield double in third inning. Didi Gregorius followed with a two-run single and made some stellar defensive plays behind Corbin to help Arizona end a three-game losing streak.
