    Arizona 13, Chicago 6

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Mark Buehrle and the rest of the Chicago White Sox pitchers had another tough day against the Arizona Diamondbacks, surrendering four homers and 18 hits in a 13-6 loss on Friday.

    Buehrle allowed three earned runs on five hits in his first two innings of work this spring.

    "I was overthrowing a little bit, I think," he said. "I was probably trying a little too hard there at the start."

    Andy Green, Eric Byrnes, Chris Snyder and top prospect Stephen Drew all homered for the Diamondbacks, who beat the World Series champions 9-2 on Thursday.

    "It was certainly a good day to hit out there, and a difficult day to pitch," Arizona manager Bob Melvin said. "The wind was really blowing and carrying to all fields."

    The wind didn't seem to bother Arizona's Brandon Webb, who tossed two scoreless, hitless innings in his first outing of the spring.

    "It felt good," Webb said. "It's good to get back out there and throw against hitters that actually don't know what's coming."

    Shawn Green drove in two runs with a double in the bottom of the first. An inning later, Snyder's solo home run made it 3-0.

    The Diamondbacks scored six more in the fifth, capped by a two-run double by 18-year-old Justin Upton, Arizona's No.1 pick in the amateur draft last year.

    Byrnes and Drew -- Arizona's top pick two years ago -- each hit solo homers off White Sox reliever Cliff Politte in the sixth.

    Jermaine Dye had a home run, double and two RBI for the White Sox.

    Arizona will send Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez to the mound Saturday against the White Sox team he helped to the World Series title last fall.
