    Arizona 10, Boston 3

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Luis Gonzalez and Tony Clark drove in two runs each for Arizona, and Brandon Webb worked six innings to beat the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Friday.

    The Diamondbacks' victory reversed a 10-9 loss to the defending world champions on Thursday.

    Webb, who allowed two runs on six hits and two walks, also had an RBI single. Shawn Green, Alex Cintron and Troy Glaus drove in runs with base hits, and Juan Brito and Craig Counsell hit sacrifice flies.

    Doug Mirabelli, Mark Bellhorn and Ian Bladergroen accounted for Boston's runs with run-scoring singles.

    Webb (2-0) struggled wild early, walking Jay Payton to lead off and giving up a double to Trot Nixon that sent Payton to third.

    Webb got the first of his four strikeouts against David Ortiz, but Miraelli followed with his single, and Bellhorn made it 2-0 with a sharp grounder that got through the right side of the infield.

    Webb was a different pitcher after that -- the closest the Red Sox came to scoring on the Phoenix ground-ball specialist after that was in the third, when Mirabelli doubled with two out, and the fifth, when Nixon also doubled with two out.

    Webb got Bellhorn on a grounder to end the third. In the fifth, David Ortiz followed Nixon with a blast to center field, but Jose Cruz Jr. backed up to the wall to catch it.

    The Diamondbacks bunched six runs in the first inning, starting when Counsell beat out an infield hit and Tim Wakefield walked Cruz.

    That set the table for Gonzalez, whose opposite-field double scored Counsell and moved Cruz along. After Glaus walked to load the bases, Green slashed a liner to left field for a single, and Clark made it 4-2 with his tie-breaking single.

    Brito flied out for another run, and Webb singled for an RBI. Wakefield got Counsell to fly to center for the second out -- his 10th batter -- and then was pulled for reliever Tim Kester.

    Kester got the final out of the first and pitched a scoreless second despite two walks, but gave up two more runs in the third and one in the fourth.
