Interleague Preview from The Sports Network



Thursday, April 18th (All times Eastern)

Arizona Diamondbacks (8-6) at New York Yankees (8-5), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Arizona - Patrick Corbin (2-0, 1.50) NY Yankees - Phil Hughes (0-2, 10.29)

(Sports Network) - Patrick Corbin was brilliant his last time out. He'll try to match that effort on Thursday when the Arizona Diamondbacks try to avoid three-game series with the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Corbin outdueled Los Angeles' Clayton Kershaw on Friday, as he scattered three hits over six scoreless innings to run his record to 2-0 on the year, while cutting his ERA in half to 1.50.

"I knew coming in it would be tough for us to get some runs, so I had to go out there and put up some zeroes," Corbin said. "They put some good at-bats on me early, and I just tried not to miss middle. They worked my pitch count up, I left much earlier than I wanted to -- but still, the outing felt good."

As good as Corbin was on Friday, New York righty Phil Hughes was just as bad on Saturday against Baltimore, as he lost his second game in as many starts, surrendering five runs and nine hits with a pair of walks in just three innings to fall to 0-2 to go along with a 10.29 ERA.

Six of the nine hits he allowed went for extra bases, including three home runs.

"I can't remember the last time I was as bad as that," said Hughes, who has yet to make it out of the fourth inning this season. "Just not being able to locate the fastball, or any offspeed pitch for that matter. Anytime I did have to come in for a strike, it was out over the middle of the plate and just got hammered somewhere."

New York won its third straight game on Wednesday, as Travis Hafner's pinch- hit tie-breaking solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning completed a late comeback that propelled the Yankees to a 4-3 victory.

The Yankees trailed 3-0 entering the bottom of the seventh, but scored three times during the inning before moving in front on Hafner's two-out blast off David Hernandez (0-1) a frame later.

Brett Gardner's two-run single in the seventh pulled New York even, while CC Sabathia (3-1) settled down after a shaky beginning to hold the Diamondbacks to three runs on six hits while fanning six over eight strong innings.

The Yankees have now won seven of their last eight games since a 1-4 start.

Paul Goldschimdt reached Sabathia for a two-run homer in the first inning, while Cody Ross finished 2-for-4 in Arizona's second straight loss in this three-game series.

Wade Miley threw 6 2/3 innings for the Diamondbacks and was charged with three runs on four hits.

New York has beaten Arizona four straight times and in seven of the last nine meetings.
