PHOENIX -- Patrick Corbin won his 11th game and tied a career high with 10 strikeouts, and Paul Goldschmidt increased his National League RBI lead to 77 in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
Corbin pitched 6 1/3 innings in his second straight start and had 10 strikeouts. The Diamondbacks used five relievers to get the final seven outs.
David Hernandez struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his second save after the Brewers left the bases loaded in the seventh and eighth.
Arizona center fielder A.J. Pollock made a diving catch of pinch-hitter Martin Maldonado's line drive to short center with two outs in the eighth to preserve the Diamondbacks' lead.

The Brewers scored without getting the ball out of the infield in the first inning. Segura beat out an infield single, took second on a sacrifice bunt and came home on two wild pitches.

NOTES: 2B Rickie Weeks played in his 1,000 game with the Brewers, the 11th player to reach that figure. He passed Prince Fielder (998) on Thursday. ... Brewers LF Ryan Braun is unlikely to return from the bereavement list when eligible Sunday, manager Ron Roenicke said. "I texted him today. It's still a tough situation." Braun was placed on bereavement leave Thursday after playing only one game following a monthlong absence with a thumb injury. He has been subject of reports that he could be suspended for 100 games, based on the findings of an investigation into the Biogenesis of America clinic in Miami. ... Brewers OF Khris Davis was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to fill out the roster but was not at the park when the game started because of travel issues, Roenicke said. Davis, a right-handed hitter, likely would have started against Corbin, Roenicke indicated. ... Milwaukee signed former Arizona RHP Micah Owings to a minor league contract.
