 ATLANTA (AP) -Mark Teixeira drove in four runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat Brandon Webb and the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 Monday.
Webb (9-2) allowed seven runs - four earned - and a season-high 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings, his shortest start since Oct. 1, 2006. He won his first nine decisions before losing 3-1 at Florida last Wednesday.
Webb struck out eight, walked three and fell behind 5-1 in the second inning. The hits were the most he allowed since San Diego had 11 last July 15.
Manny Acosta (3-1) pitched two hitless innings to win in relief of Jair Jurrjens, who gave up three runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings.
Cubs 3, Dodgers 1
CHICAGO (AP) - Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez homered to back Ryan Dempster.
Lee hit a two-run drive in the first inning off Chad Billingsley (4-6) for his 250th home run, and Ramirez added a solo homer against Scott Proctor in the eighth.
Dempster (6-2) gave the bullpen some rest after the Cubs combined to use 11 relievers in consecutive extra-inning losses at Pittsburgh. He allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings before Bob Howry and Kerry Wood finished.
Brewers 4, Nationals 3, 11 innings
WASHINGTON (AP) - Pinch-hitter Gabe Kapler singled home a run in the 11th inning.
Prince Fielder led off the 11th with an opposite-field double to left against an exaggerated shift, then moved to third on Corey Hart's sacrifice bunt. After Russell Branyan struck out, Kapler lined the first pitch from Saul Rivera (3-2) to center for an RBI single.
Carlos Villanueva (3-5) pitched two scoreless innings, striking out five of the six hitters he faced. Salomon Torres got the final three outs for his third save in five tries.
