Houston's other baserunners came on a hit batsman to lead off the third and a two-out walk in the eighth. Neither runner made it past first.

Francisco Cordero worked a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

Rosales singled in a run in the fifth and delivered a sacrifice fly in the eighth for the game's final score. Laynce Nix also had an RBI single in the sixth.
