Webb notches 11th win as Diamondbacks down Pirates

Arizona's Brandon Webb became Major League Baseball's first 11-game winner this season, holding Pittsburgh to just one run over seven innings, and driving in a run, as the Diamondbacks' beat the Pirates 3-1 in the National League on Friday.
Webb, coming off a shutout win over Washington the previous weekend, didn't allow a hit until a two-out single in the fifth. The right-hander has permitted only one extra-base hit in 16 innings over his past two starts.
Reds 11, Marlins 3
In Miami, Jay Bruce continued his sizzling start in the majors with three hits and three more RBIs as Cincinatti beat Florida.
Bruce _ the Reds' first-round draft pick three years ago _ went 3-for-4, and is now hitting .463 with 10 RBIs in 11 games since being called up from the minor leagues.
Johnny Cueto pitched six innings to win his third straight start for Cincinnati.
Astros 6, Cardinals 1
In Houston, the home side won with the aid of three runs scored on St. Louis errors.
Hunter Pence had an RBI double for the Astros.
Giants 10, Nationals 1
In Washington, Tim Lincecum pitched seven sharp innings to win his fourth straight decision as San Francisco trounced Washington.
Jose Castillo hit a three-run homer for San Francisco.
Lincecum didn't allow a hit until a two-out single in the fourth. He gave up just one run, struck out five and walked none.
The Giants backed Lincecum with seven runs in the third, capped off by Jose Castillo's three-run homer.
Phillies 4, Braves 3
In Atlanta, Philadelphia center fielder Shane Victorino drove in the go-ahead run with a triple in the 10th, then threw out a runner at the plate to prevent a tying run in the bottom of the inning, condemning Atlanta to yet another one-run loss.
The Phillies took advantage of a ninth-inning error to tie the game 2-2.
Victorino's second triple of the game made it 3-2 and the Phillies then added another.
Atlanta cut the deficit to one run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and almost got level with the close play at the plate.
The Braves are a majors-worst 3-17 in one-run games.
Rockies 6, Brewers 4
In Denver, Colorado rattled on five runs in the eighth inning to rally past Milwaukee.
Garrett Atkins tied the game with a two-run triple and Brad Hawpe gave Colorado the lead with a two-run homer.
Hawpe, who was activated off the 15-day disabled list before the game, homered on the first pitch from reliever Brian Shouse.
The loss snapped the Brewers' six-game winning streak.
Padres 2, Mets 1
In San Diego, Randy Wolf pitched seven strong innings to steer San Diego to its third straight 2-1 win, downing New York.
Kevin Kouzmanoff drove in the go-ahead run.
Wolf limited the Mets to one run in seven innings and worked out of two bases-loaded jams.
Dodgers 3, Cubs 0
In Los Angeles, Hiroki Kuroda allowed only four hits and struck out a career-high 11 in his first complete game, leading Los Angeles over Chicago.
Kuroda did not walk a batter in his 13th big league start, induced two double plays and allowed only one baserunner as far as third.
The Cubs, who lead the majors and have the most runs, were shut out for the third time this season. It was the first complete game pitched against Chicago this season.
