Brandon Webb pitches Diamondbacks to 2-1 victory over Dodgers

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks are usually in pretty good shape when Brandon Webb gets the ball.

When he pitches against the Los Angeles Dodgers, they're just about unbeatable.

Webb scattered six hits in eight innings to win his major league-leading 15th game, and the Diamondbacks beat Los Angeles 2-1 last night to extend their NL West lead over the Dodgers to two games.

Webb walked one and struck out six in outpitching Derek Lowe and continuing his domination of the Dodgers.

The 2006 NL Cy Young Award winner is 8-0 in his last nine starts against Los Angeles, allowing nine runs in 71 innings, and has a 15-4 overall record this season.

Mark Reynolds had an RBI double in the Arizona seventh inning and Chris Synder added an RBI single.

Brandon Lyon blanked the Dodgers in the ninth to earn his 23rd save in 28 chances.

The win was the sixth in seven games for the Diamondbacks while the Dodgers lost for just the second time in seven games.
