Webb notches 11th win for Diamondbacks

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.
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.
