Patrick Corbin had hitters chasing sliders in the dirt and made up a 65 mph pitch on the fly. Arizona’s defense had a pair of spectacular plays behind him, the kind that end up in the highlight reel when history is made.
A buzz filled Chase Field as the left-hander inched closer to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ third no-hitter.
One check swing ended Corbin’s bid. No history, but one awfully dominant performance.
Corbin lost his no-hit bid on a checked-swing infield single with two outs in the eighth inning but finished a one-hitter to lift the Diamondbacks over the San Francisco Giants 1-0 on Tuesday night.
It was really great stuff from him all night, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. It was a Jake Lamb Jersey fun night to be a baseball fan, a special night.
Limited Kids Dion Phaneuf Jersey Corbin locked into a pitching duel with San Francisco’s Johnny Cueto, who struck out 11 and allowed two hits in seven innings after being reinstated from the DL.
The Diamondbacks struck when the San Francisco right-hander exited.
Tony Watson (1-1) walked Jarrod Dyson with one out in the eighth and Corbin moved him over with a sacrifice bunt. David Peralta then lined a single up the middle to score Dyson for the game’s only run.
Cahill pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut, Jed Lowrie marked his 34th birthday with a go-ahead home run in a five-run first inning and the the A’s beat the Chicago White Sox 10-2 Tuesday night on the 50th anniversary of the A’s first game at the Coliseum.
I was just kind of mixing everything in there, Cahill said. The curveball was kind of erratic early, and then later I was able to throw it for a strike. We started mixing in a little slider-cutter there at the end. We just kind of used a little bit of everything.
