Corbin tosses 3-hitter as D-backs beat Rockies 5-1
DENVER (AP) - Patrick Corbin tossed a three-hitter for his first complete game and struck out a career-high 10, lifting the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 5-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.
Corbin (7-0) joined Randy Johnson as the only lefties in team history to begin the season 7-0. He also turned in his club-record ninth straight start where he's pitched at least six innings and allowed two runs or less.
Mixing an effective slider with a sneaky fastball, Corbin kept the Rockies hitters guessing all night. He held Colorado hitless until Troy Tulowitzki's single up the middle in the fourth and didn't allow another hit until Nolan Arenado's double in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco broke up Corbin's shutout bid with a double that brought home Arenado.
Football player Daryl Washington pleads not guilty
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, who authorities have said is the mother of his baby daughter.
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says Washington entered the plea Monday.
Washington is charged with aggravated assault and criminal trespass. He has been free since he posted $2,400 bond after being arrested May 3.
Phoenix police have said Washington's ex-girlfriend claimed he grabbed her by the throat and shoved her to the ground following an argument at her apartment.
Washington led the Cardinals with 134 tackles and nine sacks last season. He signed a 6-year contract extension in September.
He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Giulia Molinaro won the Friends of Mission Charity Classic on Sunday for first Symetra Tour title, closing with a 7-under 65 for a five-stroke victory.
Molinaro, the former Arizona State player from Italy, had a 13-under 203 total at the Country Club of Asheville. She earned $15,000.
"I had an amazing day," Molinaro said. "I've never been in contention for a professional tournament like this and, the first day I was, I won it, so I'm in seventh heaven right now. I played amazing, I'm extremely happy, everything went my way. I mean, I saw putts that were going in and everything went great."
Macarena Silva, a former Florida State player from Chile, was second after a 67.
Jennifer Johnson wins Mobile Bay LPGA Classic
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Jennifer Johnson won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic on Sunday for her first tour title, birdieing 4 of the final six holes for a one-stroke victory over Jessica Korda and Pornanong Phatlum.
The 21-year-old American closed with her second straight 7-under 65 for a tournament-record 21-under 267 total on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Magnolia Grove complex. She two-putted for par on the final hole, tipped her cap and headed toward the practice range in case of a playoff.
But Phatlum was already done and the lead was safe even with Korda's closing birdie. Phatlum, a 23-year-old from Thailand, closed with a 63. Her previous best finish was third at the Kia Classic.
Korda finished with a 68 that included three bogeys and seven birdies.
Five players finished two strokes back, including Hall of Famer Karrie Webb.
