Patrick Corbin threw 54 pitches, but recorded only four outs and allowed three runs in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

The first inning was a disaster for the lefty. Yunel Escobar led off with a home run, then the Nationals got three more consecutive hits to plate another run. Jayson Werth brought in run number three with a ground out. He left with one out in the second inning after walking Bryce Harper to put runners on first and second. Corbin has otherwise been solid in six starts, carrying a 3.99 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. He'll aim to rebound versus the Reds at home.

Brad Ziegler recorded the final two outs of Monday's 6-4 win against the Nationals to earn his 19th save.

The Diamondbacks entered the bottom of the ninth with a 6-0 lead and Daniel Hudson on the mound, but the right-hander allowed a solo home run followed by three singles and a double, leading to four runs scoring before departing. Ziegler entered and got Jayson Werth to ground out and Yunel Escobar to foul out to end the contest. He moves to 19-for-21 in save situations with a 1.17 ERA and a 28/14 K/BB ratio over 46 1/3 innings.

Welington Castillo hit another home run in Monday's victory versus the Nationals, finishing 1-for-4.

Castillo went back-to-back with David Peralta in the fourth inning against Doug Fister. His solo blast made it a 4-0 ballgame. The catcher has five home runs in his last six games, giving him 12 on the season and 10 since joining the Diamondbacks in early June.
Aug 3 - 9:57 PM

David Peralta went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, aiding in Monday's win against the Nationals.

Peralta boosted the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-0 with a two-run home run off of Doug Fister in the fourth inning. It was his first home run since July 18, but he had hit .316 (12-for-38) in that span of time, so it wasn't a slump. On the season, the outfielder is batting a healthy .284/.353/.503 with 10 home runs and 50 RBI.
Aug 3 - 9:54 PM

Zack Godley tossed six scoreless innings to beat the Nationals on Monday.

Godley scattered three hits and a pair of walks while fanning six batters in the effort. The 25-year-old has had terrific results in his first three major league starts, sporting a 1.50 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP and a 17/5 K/BB ratio over 18 frames. He'll look to continue the trend with a weekend start at home versus the Reds. The Diamondbacks plan to move Godley to the bullpen soon, so it could be his final start of the season.
Aug 3 - 9:49 PM

Nick Ahmed went 4-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals on Monday.

Ahmed broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third inning with a solo home run off of Doug Fister. It was one of four Arizona homers on the evening. The shortstop hasn't exactly been an offensive dynamo, as Monday's performance still leaves him with a lackluster .232/.289/.348 batting line along with seven home runs and 26 RBI.
Aug 3 - 9:47 PM

A.J. Pollock (hamstring) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Monday versus the Nationals.

Pollock was given a few days off this weekend with a minor hamstring injury. The 27-year-old outfielder is batting .305/.361/.465 with 11 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 100 games this season for the Diamondbacks. He's one of the most underrated players in baseball.
Aug 3 - 3:36 PM

Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Lamb doubled home a run against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the second inning. The Diamondbacks wouldn't score again in the game, though, as they fell by a score of 4-1. For the season, the Snakes' third baseman is hitting .279/.340/.425 with three homers and 24 RBI across 179 at-bats.
Aug 2 - 5:34 PM

Robbie Ray failed to give the Diamondbacks length in Sunday's loss to the Astros, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings.

Ray avoided the big inning, instead allowing a slow trickle of runs, with one scoring in the second, two scoring in the fourth and a final run coming home in the fifth frame. He struck out five and walked three as he fell to 3-6 on the season. The owner of a 3.01 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 63/20 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings, Ray will head home to face the Reds in his next start.
Aug 2 - 5:21 PM

Zack Godley is expected to move into a relief role soon as a way to conserve his innings.

This is Godley first full season as a starter, and he's already thrown 101 1/3 innings after tossing just 55 1/3 frames as a reliever last year. The 25-year-old is likely due for one more start with the big club before Chase Anderson (triceps) returns later this week. "He could be (a reliever) here, maybe he would go to the bullpen in the minor leagues and then come back up sometime in September," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. "But we have to be very careful."

Chase Anderson (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' rookie-level Arizona League team on Sunday.

He's slated to throw four innings or 60 pitches in what could be his lone rehab outing. Out the last two weeks with right triceps inflammation, Anderson is expected to replace Zack Godley in the rotation when he returns.
Aug 2 - 9:02 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

In a season filled with highlights and astronomical numbers, Saturday's loss to the Astros won't be making the cut when Goldschmidt decides what to show his grandchildren. He failed to pick up a hit or walk in the game and couldn't put the ball in play for two of his three at-bats. These things happen--just not very often for Goldy, who is hitting .346/.462/.599 with 22 homers, 77 RBI and 17 steals. The steal number is one off of his personal best for a season.
Aug 1 - 11:10 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was absolutely rocked in Saturday's loss to the Astros, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Many, many things went wrong in this outing for Hellickson, but the proceedings didn't officially burst into flame until the fourth inning. Following a Nick Ahmed fielding error to put runners on first and third, Hellickson proceeded to plunk Colby Rasmus and walk Chris Carter to push across the first run of the inning. The other four runs didn't take much time to develop, as Hank Conger followed the Carter walk with a grand slam. Two more hits followed to drive the Snakes' starter from the contest. Hellickson had pitched very well over his last four starts, but when the dust settled from Saturday's disaster, he held a 4.95 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He continues to hold value in deeper NL-only formats, but that value's limited at this point and could disappear altogether if he turns in another start of this variety.
Aug 1 - 11:01 PM

Jake Lamb is not in the Diamonbacks' starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

It's a routine day off for Lamb. Aaron Hill will grab the start at third base. Lamb has hit .248 since coming off the disabled list in early June.
Aug 1 - 5:04 PM

A.J. Pollock is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

He was forced to leave Friday's game due to tightness in his hamstring, and it sounds as though manager Chip Hale wants to give him an extra day just to be safe. Cliff Pennington is starting in left field and will bat ninth for the D'Backs.
