The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to make AT&T Park their home away from home. For the second game in a row and the fourth time in five games in San Francisco, the Snakes shut out the Giants, this time by a score of 6-0. Patrick Corbin had his best outing since his return from Tommy John surgery, allowing five hits and no walks while striking out five in seven innings of work. The lefty lowered his ERA to 2.99 and is now 6-4 in 14 starts.

After a relatively quiet performance on Friday, the Arizona offense busted out the whooping sticks with a 17 hit barrage. Ender InciarteA.J. Pollock, and David Peralta led the way with three base knocks each and three runs driven in among the three of them. Jake Lamb and Chris Owings had two hits apiece while Jarrod Saltalamacchia supplied the only extra-base hit with an RBI double in the eighth inning. Every D-back starter had at least one hit, including Corbin who had an RBI single in the fifth. Pollock stole his 36th base and scored two runs, giving him 101 on the year.

The D-backs now lead the season series 11-7. They look for another sweep tomorrow behind Jeremy Hellickson who will be opposed by long-time Arizona nemesis Tim Hudson.
