HOUSTON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Brett Myers hurled eight innings of one-run ball and Carlos Lee homered Monday in the Houston Astros' 5-1 win over Philadelphia.

Myers (5-13) yielded six hits while walking one and striking out four. The ex-Philly won his second straight start after snapping a personal 14 game winless streak.

Lee's two-run blast in the fifth inning put the Astros up 4-1. J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 with three runs scored for Houston.

Former longtime Astro Roy Oswalt (7-9) was saddled with the loss, yielding five runs on 11 hits over seven innings in his first visit to Minute Maid Park as a member of an opposing team.

Pete Orr got the only RBI for Philadelphia, which lost its second straight after a six-game winning streak.
