Patrick Corbin joins other D-backs aces with great start

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin is off to a fantastic start in 2013.

Through eight starts, the lefty has yet to lose a game.

Through eight starts, the number five starter has yet to allow more than two runs in any single performance.

Through eight starts, Corbin has thrown at least six innings per outing.

The 23-year-old's efforts have placed him in some elite company with regards to the team's history, as both Randy Johnson and Brandon Webb went deep into respective seasons without a loss.
