Sunday, August 10, 2008 (AP) -- Brandon Webb threw six strong innings for his major league-leading 17th win and also hit a two-run double to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 6-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Chris Snyder homered for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a four-game losing streak to remain in first place in the NL West.

Omar Infante drove in the lone run on a sixth-inning sacrifice fly for the Braves, who fell one game short of their first four-game sweep of Arizona since 2004.

Webb (17-4) was effective if not sharp, allowing one run and six hits over six innings with two walks and five strikeouts and throwing 62 of 96 pitches for strikes.
