Brandon Webb hit a two-run double and improved to 5-0 as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated San Francisco 5-4 on Tuesday night.

He allowed three runs and nine hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out a season-high seven. Webb spotted the Giants a 3-0 lead. But he hit a two-run double in the fourth—his second two-run hit off Zito this season—to give the Diamondbacks a 4-3 lead. At 15-5, Arizona leads the NL West by six games,
