ATLANTA, May 16 (UPI) -- Tommy Hanson struck out 10 Astros over seven innings and Eric Hinske got the go-ahead RBI Monday in the Atlanta Braves' 3-2 win over Houston.

Eric O'Flaherty tossed a scoreless eighth inning and Craig Kimbrel picked up his 11th save with three strikeouts in the ninth for Atlanta.

Nate McLouth and Dan Uggla drew walks from Fernando Abad (1-4) in the seventh and Hinske followed with a one-out RBI single to break a 2-2 tie.

Astros starter Brett Myers held Atlanta to two runs on eight hits over six frames.

Matt Downs drove in both of Houston's runs with a solo homer and an RBI double.
