PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Orlando Hudson had four hits and drove in four runs, Micah Owings pitched five effective innings Tuesday night to lead Arizona over Philadelphia 11-5, the Diamondbacks' sixth straight victory.
Owings (4-1) gave up one run and seven hits. He tripled with two outs in the fifth and didn't come out for the sixth.
Arizona got five runs off starter Jon Lieber (2-3) in the second inning and five unearned runs off reliever Geoff Geary in the eighth.
Ryan Howard of the Phillies left in the ninth inning after it appeared he injured his left leg diving for a groundball. The first baseman had three homers in five games since coming off the disabled list last Friday. The reigning NL MVP missed two weeks with a quad injury that began bothering him in spring training.
Lieber allowed five runs and 13 hits in 6 2-3 innings.
Pirates 4, Padres 1
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tom Gorzelanny scattered seven hits over seven innings to lead Pittsburgh, which won for the fourth time in five games.
Gorzelanny (6-3), who gave up one run, entered the game third in the NL with a 2.51 ERA. He lowered that to 2.39.
Josh Bard went 3-for-4 and Jose Cruz had two hits for the Padres, who had won three in a row and six of seven.
Jason Bay hit his eighth homer and scored two runs for Pittsburgh. Adam LaRoche finished with three hits.
David Wells (2-3) allowed two runs and eight hits in five innings.
Salomon Torres pitched the ninth for his 12th save.
Dodgers 10, Nationals 0
WASHINGTON (AP) - Brad Penny scattered four singles over 6 1-3 innings and Juan Pierre had a career-high four extra-base hits for Los Angeles.
Penny (7-1) struck out four and walked one, combining with two relievers on the Dodgers' third shutout of the season. Penny has yet to surrender a home run in 70 innings, making him the only pitcher in the majors who has pitched at least 40 innings without allowing a homer.
Luis Gonzalez hit a three-run homer for Los Angeles, which has won five of six.
Washington, coming off a 5-2 road trip, lost for the third time in four games at RFK Stadium.
Jason Simontacchi (2-3) got behind early, when Pierre hit the game's second pitch for a triple into the right-field corner and then scored on Nomar Garciaparra's one-out single.
Simontacchi went a season-high 6 1-3 innings, departing after loading the bases in the seventh and setting the stage for a six-run inning. He gave up six runs and 11 hits.
