SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Ian Kennedy cruised to his 18th win Saturday, a 7-2 Arizona victory over San Francisco in an National League West showdown.

Kennedy (18-4) became the first National League pitcher to reach 18 wins with his 21st quality start of the season. The right-hander held the Giants to one run on five hits over seven frames. He walked two and struck out six.

Paul Goldschmidt's homer broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning and he added an RBI single in the next frame as the NL West-leading D-backs pounded out 12 hits en route to a crucial win over second-place San Francisco.

Arizona won for the 10th time in 11 games and improved its lead over the Giants to six games.

San Francisco's Tim Lincecum (12-12) was the loser, giving up five runs on nine hits and three walks over five innings, while fanning seven.

Pablo Sandoval drove in both Giants runs with sacrifice flies.
