Arizona Diamondbacks

Young's slam off Corbin helps D-backs top booed Nats 11-6

Here’s what counted as good news, at least: "I feel all right," said Corbin, in the third season of a six-year, $140 million contract he signed as a free agent after two All-Star appearances for Arizona.

That’s the thing about bringing back spectators to baseball stadiums: The more there are, and the worse the home team plays, the more likely there is to be displeasure voiced.

After zero fans at Nationals Park last season because of the coronavirus pandemic, then a limit of 5,000 for this month’s opening homestand, the capacity was allowed to roughly double Thursday.

Corbin allowed nine earned runs while getting merely six outs against the Diamondbacks (5-8), an awful outing that included a pair of hit batters, a trio of homers and a quartet of walks.

Arizona 3B Asdrúbal Cabrera went 0 for 6 against his former club: He played for Washington in 2014, 2019 and 2020, including starting five World Series games two seasons ago.

... 1B coach Dave McKay, 71, still is dealing with a broken rib and an "inability to take deep breaths" after a dugout fall more than a month ago at spring training, Lovullo said.
