Reineke beat the Phillies in his first start for his first Major League win.
His counterpart, Webb, is having a Cy Young Award-caliber season. Webb is 8-0 in his last 11 starts, with his last loss on June 22 against the Twins.
SD: RHP Chad Reineke (1-1, 4.91 ERA)
In Reineke's second career big league start, he may have pitched well enough to win, but he went up against Webb, who won the duel in Arizona. The rookie had his first quality start but made a few mistake pitches, most notably to Conor Jackson, who smacked a two-run double in the fifth inning.
ARI: RHP Brandon Webb (19-4, 2.74 ERA)
Webb might have had his best sinker in his last outing against the Padres, limiting them to just three hits across seven innings as he picked up his Major League-leading 19th win. Webb had a little bit of a scare in the sixth inning, when a Kevin Kouzmanoff line drive hit him in his ribs, but the right-hander will make the start.
