Kent collapse hands Worcestershire win
The hosts were fired out for just 63 second time around as Alan Richardson returned figures of seven for 22.
The Pears knocked off the victory target of 29 in just 8.5 overs to secure their first championship win of the season.
Essex grabbed their second win as they chased down 275 with five wickets in hand late on the final day against Glamorgan.
Opener Tom Westley was the star of the chase as he hit 88 before he was run out by Michael Hogan.
Westley and Jaik Mickelburgh (66) set up victory with a 143-run stand for the first wicket before Mark Pettini's unbeaten 47 got them over the line.
Leaders Northamptonshire were denied a fourth win by former wicketkeeper Niall O'Brien as they drew with Leicestershire.
Northamptonshire declared just after lunch on 215 for eight, with 18-year-old wicketkeeper Ben Duckett making an unbeaten 53 off 65 balls to give Leicestershire an unlikely target of 337.
The visitors unsurprisingly opted to settle for the draw, which they comfortably achieved as the two captains shook hands with the score 168 for three - O'Brien making 59 off 118 balls.
