PHOENIX (AP) -- Adam Dunn hit his National League-leading 34th home run, his second in as many games, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 on Wednesday night.

Chris Snyder also homered for the Diamondbacks, who have won five of seven to maintain their lead over Los Angeles in the NL West.

Kevin Kouzmanoff and Jody Gerut homered for the Padres, who have lost six of their last eight.

Arizona starter Dan Haren (14-6) struggled through a six-inning stint but won for the seventh time in eight outings.

Haren surrendered five runs and a season-worst 11 hits with four strikeouts. Haren did not walk a batter for the eighth time in 26 starts.
