ATLANTA (AP) -- Brandon Webb is on a different type of streak, thanks to Mark Teixeira and the Atlanta Braves.

Teixeira drove in four runs against Webb as the Braves beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 today and sent Webb to his second straight
defeat.

Webb (9-2) allowed seven runs and a season-high 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings. It was his shortest start since October 1st, 2006. He won his first nine decisions before losing 3-1 at Florida last Wednesday.

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. Jeff Bennett entered with a 5-3 lead, a man on and two outs in the fifth and retired Mark Reynolds on a flyout.

Atlanta split the four-game series to complete an 8-3 homestand, the Braves' longest this season. Arizona finished a 2-5 trip.
