Patrick Corbin, pitching in relief during Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday, allowed six earned runs in two-thirds of an inning. The Washington lefty, who started Game 1, entered the contest in the top of the sixth with his team leading 2-1 over the Los Angeles Dodgers. After allowing a leadoff single to Cody Bellinger, Corbin recorded consecutive strikeouts against Corey Seager and A.J. Pollock.

But with two outs, Gavin Lux kept the inning alive with a single, then catcher Russell Martin followed with a two-run double. After pinch hitter Chris Taylor drew a walk, Joc Pederson plated two more runs with another double.

Corbin intentionally walked Max Muncy, and then was lifted in favor of righty Wander Suero. The first hitter that Suero faced, Justin Turner, blasted a three-run homer, giving L.A. an 8-2 lead. The Dodgers went on to win 10-4 to take a 2-1 series lead.
