PHOENIX (AP)-- Patrick Corbin struck out nine in a combined four-hitter, David Peralta had four hits and two RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks rolled over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-0 on Wednesday.

Corbin (10-4) had the Phillies guessing most of the game, allowing four hits in 7 1/3 innings while reaching a career-high 183 strikeouts this season. The left-hander did not give up a home run for the ninth straight start, the longest stretch by a Diamondbacks pitcher since Brandon Webb in 2003.

MLB trade news: Phillies deal for Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera

  MLB trade news: Phillies deal for Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera Cabrera has registered a .277/.329/.488 slash line, hit 18 home runs and tallied 58 RBIs so far in 2018. Cabrera, a two-time All-Star, signed with the Mets in December 2015. He has hit .270 over his 12-year MLB career.Kilomé is the Phillies' 10th best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. The 6-foot-6 right hander has tallied a 4-6 record with a 4.24 ERA in 2018 with Philadelphia’s Double-A affiliate in Reading, Penn.

Peralta hit a two-run triple off Vince Velasquez (8-9) in the third inning, sending the Phillies right-hander to his first loss since June 25 against the New York Yankees.

Peralta had his fourth four-hit game of the home stand and tied the franchise record with 10 hits in the three-game series against the Phillies. He is 18 for 31 since taking two days off with shoulder tightness last week.

BOX SCORE: DIAMONDBACKS 6, PHILLIES 0

Eduardo Escobar had three RBIs for the NL West-leading Diamondbacks.

Velasquez allowed two or fewer runs in his six starts heading into Wednesday's game, with a 0.95 ERA in four July starts. The right-hander allowed two hits in 6 1/3 scoreless innings to beat the Miami Marlins in his previous start.

The Diamondbacks eclipsed the two-run barrier against Velasquez in the third inning, going up 3-0 on Peralta's two-run triple and Escobar's sacrifice fly.

Gabe Kapler: Losing 13-inning game was ‘punch in the face’

  Gabe Kapler: Losing 13-inning game was ‘punch in the face’ Losing a game in extra innings is never easy, but Monday’s loss for the Philadelphia Phillies was particularly tough. Aaron Nola pitched beautifully for Philly in a 2-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox in 13 innings. He allowed just one run and four hits over eight innings but left with a no-decision, similar to David Price. The Red Sox won the game in the 13th on a Blake Swihart RBI ground-rule double.

Arizona added a run in the fourth inning on Jon Jay's double play. Velasquez did not come out for the fifth after allowing four runs and six hits.

Pinch hitter Roman Quinn hit a one-out double off Corbin in the sixth inning, the only Phillies player to reach second base against the Arizona left-hander.

TRAINER'S TABLE

Diamondbacks: RF Steven Souza Jr. was sore after a crash into the wall Tuesday night and did not play. He is expected back Friday in Cincinnati.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks RHP Clay Buchholz is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA in five starts heading into Friday's game at Cincinnati. Phillies RHP Zach Eflin will make his 2018 debut when he faces the San Diego Padres on Friday.
