D'backs 1, Pirates 0

PHOENIX — Ian Kennedy pitched eight dominant innings to become the NL's first 20-game winner, Justin Upton hit a broken-bat homer and Arizona moved a step closer to its first NL West title in four years. Kennedy tied his career high with 12 strikeouts and became the fourth Diamondbacks pitcher to reach 20 wins. Upton led off the sixth with a homer off Jeff Karstens, snapping off his bat on a shot to left that was upheld by a video review.
