"I felt like I wasn't as amped up as the last time," Corbin said. "Mechanically, everything felt smooth, changeup felt good, the location of my fastball was really good today. Tried to throw strikes and work fast. Fastball inside today was a lot better, too."
Offensive outburst The D-backs pounded out 12 runs on 18 hits against the Royals and got homers from Ahmed, Chris Herrmann and Evan Marzilli.
"They looked good today," Corbin said of the offense. "They put together some good at-bats. It was great to see three homers early in the game."
