MILWAUKEE, April 25 (UPI) -- Jose Altuve and J.D. Martinez combined for seven hits, four runs scored and four knocked in Wednesday in Houston's 7-5 win over Milwaukee.

Altuve recorded his first career four-hit game and scored runs in the first and second innings while Martinez drove in three runs, with two coming on an eight-inning double that put the Brewers ahead 7-4.

Astros reliever Wilton Lopez (2-0) pitched the sixth inning and collected the win while Brett Myers had a 1-2-3 ninth for his third save.

Jose Veras (2-1) came on the seventh for Milwaukee and gave up a two-out ground ball single to Chris Snyder that broke a 4-4 tie.

Houston increased the lead in the eighth when Jordan Schafer singled and took third on Altuve's double. Martinez followed with a single that got both runners home.

The Brewers got a Corey Hart home run -- his sixth of the season -- in the eighth for the final run.

Altuve singled and scored on a Martinez double in the first but Ryan Braun answered with a two-run home run -- his fourth of the year -- in the bottom of the inning.

The Brewers went up 4-2 in the second. Altuve singled and scored and Martinez walked and scored to key the inning. A home run by Travis Ishikawa in the second and Braun scoring on a wild pitch in the third tied the score 4-4.
