PHOENIX (AP) - A.J. Burnett pitched eight sharp innings for his first win of the season and the Philadelphia Phillies ended a 10-game road trip with a 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Burnett (1-1) gave up five hits, struck out eight and walked none in his sixth start. Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his eighth save and second in as many games.

Chase Utley hit an RBI single in the first, then doubled and scored in the sixth while raising his batting average to .360. The Phillies took two of three from Arizona and went 6-4 on their trip.

Brandon McCarthy (0-5) struck out a career-high 12 in seven innings. He gave up both runs and seven hits.
