SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Brian Giles and Kevin Kouzmanoff both drove in three runs as the San Diego Padres denied Brandon Webb his 20th victory with a 9-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Giles hit a three-run homer and Kouzmanoff added a two-run double in a five-run third inning as Arizona lost its third straight and fourth in five games. Kouzmanoff added an RBI double in the seventh.
Chase Headley drove in two runs for San Diego.
The Diamondbacks retained their three-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.
Rookie Chad Reineke (2-1) pitched five innings for the win and combined with five relievers on a three-hitter.
