PHOENIX, May 7 (UPI) -- Stephen Drew golfed a 1-2 fast ball for a three-run homer Tuesday, keying the Arizona Diamondbacks' 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Drew's shot into the pool area beyond the right-center field wall at Chase Field put the Diamondbacks up 6-2 and ultimately snapping a two-game losing streak.

Arizona also got an RBI and two runs from Chris Young and an RBI from Conor Jackson. The D-backs' other run came on a bases-loaded walk.

Randy Johnson (2-1) got the win despite giving up four runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out six. Relievers Chad Qualls, Tony Pena and Brandon Lyon each pitched a scoreless inning. It was Lyon's 10th save.

The Phillies' runs came mostly from Eric Bruntlett, who homered, doubled and knocked in three runs. Jayson Werth hit a solo homer for Philadelphia, which lost for the fourth time in its last 12 games.

Adam Eaton (0-1) was the loser after giving up six runs on five hits in four innings. He was tagged with no-decisions in his first six starts.
