This is a Free play on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

After starting the season 9-0, Patrick Corbin had a chance to become the Major League's first 10 game winner, in fact he had a few chances. He's failed to register a decision in each of his last three starts, but he continue to pitch very well, especially at home.

Corbin (9-0, 2.28 ERA) allowed just two runs on two hits while fanning seven over eight innings in a 3-2 Arizona loss to Miami in his last start. His numbers at home are very impressive, with a record of 5-0, 1.71 ERA in seven starts at Chase Field. Those are some pretty good stats in a park that's not known to be kind to pitchers.

The D'Backs will hope that the bats can remain hot, after an offensive explosion at home against the Reds in the series opener last night. Paul Goldschmidt who leads the league in RBIs (65) was 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, and he had some help from Jason Kubel, who was 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI.

That's not good news for Cincinnati's Mike Leake, who will get the start opposite Corbin tonight. Leake (7-3, 2.64 ERA) has pitched well, winning consecutive starts and allowing just two runs over 15 innings. He won't have fond memories of his last visit to Chase Field though, getting "chased" from the game after just 4 1/3 innings, not before he allowed six runs on nine hits.

Willie Bloomquist has hit .345 since being called up on June 1, and he was 2-for-5 last night. The 35 year old is 4-for-7 with a double in his career versus Leake. He's not the only one in the lineup who has hit Leake well, as a whole they are batting .357 against him.

Corbin looks to be in good shape to get his 10th win here tonight.

Take Arizona.
