Shelby Miller ran his record to 15-9 with the win, with new closer Trevor Rosenthal nailing down his third straight save.
First baseman Matt Adams gave the rookie arms all the runs they would need with a two run homer off losing pitcher Jordan Zimmerman.
Zimmerman failed in his attempt to win his 20th game of the year, he ends the season with a 19-9 record.
