A Preview Of The Dbacks Starting Rotation In 2014

Corbin has the ace of the rotation since he made his start of the season for Arizona and has not looked back. If the Dbacks make the postseason, he will be one of the reasons why this happens. The young left-hander leads the team in wins with 13 on the season. He also has a 2.79 ERA in 177.2 inning pitched while just walking 45 batters and striking out 154. He has a WHIP of 1.04 and is limiting batters to a .216 average on the season. Corbin is holding left-handed batters to a batting average of just .180 in 150 at-bats this season. He also knows how to pitch well at Chase Field with him winning eight games at home and having a 1.86 ERA. The youngster is stingy with runners in scoring position, as teams only have a .197 batting average in this situation.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have had highs and lows this season, and there is still a chance they could make the playoffs. Arizona sits 8 ½ games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West division.

The Dodgers seem like they are running away with the division title, but Arizona still has seven games left against them in September to narrow the gap and put some pressure on them.

The St. Louis Cardinals sure look like they are the team to beat with the playoffs looming. If this squad joins the ranks of great Cardinal teams of the past, which player is the face of this Red Birds squad?

Andy Pettitte  pitched 7 shutout innings, leading the Yankees past the Blue Jays, 7-1.

Gerardo Parra drove in 5 runs, including 3 on a homer, and was the specter on deck for the Diamondbacks bizarre 10-9 extra inning walk off victory over the Padres.

Jonathon Niese gave Met fans reason to cheer with a complete game, 3 hit shutout of the Phillies, 5-0.
