Corbin pitches Diamondbacks past Dodgers 4-0

Patrick Corbin pitched two-hit ball over six innings following his promotion from the minors Wednesday, and the Arizona Diamondbacks got home runs from Miguel Montero and newcomer Chris Johnson in a 4-0 victory that completed a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Montero opened the scoring in the second inning with an RBI single against rookie Stephen Fife and made it 4-0 in the eighth with his 13th homer, a two-run shot off Randy Choate. Montero's three RBIs raised his season total to 64, the most among catchers.

Corbin (3-4) struck out five and walked two in his sixth major league start after spending the previous two months with Triple-A Reno, where he was 3-2 with a 3.44 ERA in nine starts.
