PHOENIX, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Chris Young belted two homers and knocked in four runs Sunday as the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the Chicago Cubs, 5-4.

Young's 27th homer of the season was a solo shot in the bottom of the first. His 28th homer was a three-run shot in the second.

Jeff Cirillo drove in Arizona’s other run with a single in the second. Like Young, Jeff Salazar had two hits for the NL West-leading Diamondbacks, who won twice in the three-game series.

The winner was Edgar Gonzalez (6-2).

Closer Jose Valverde recorded his 40th save of the season.

Chicago’s Cliff Floyd had two hits, including a solo homer in the first. Derek Lee hit an inside-the-park solo homer in the third.

Aramis Ramirez also had one RBI, and a run scored on Scott Drew’s first-inning throwing error for the Cubs, who have lost three of four.

The losing pitcher was Cubs starter Jason Marquis (10-8).
