Atlanta is 9-2 in its last 11 games against Arizona, but Corbin has been tough this year. Lefty hitters are just 5-37 (.135) with a .200 OBP against Corbin with 12 strikeouts in his seven starts this year. He is Arizona's first pitcher to start 5-0 since Brandon Webb started 9-0 in 2008. This will be his first career start against Atlanta; he appeared in one game in relief against the Braves last June.

Both teams are undefeated in their respective pitcher's starts. Last night's 10-1 win was just the second time this year the Braves had scored that many runs in a single game (April 23, 10-2 over COL).
