HOUSTON, June 3 (UPI) -- Jordan Lyles notched his first win of the season with seven strong innings Sunday and Houston broke an eight-game slide with a 5-3 win over Cincinnati.

The second-year right-hander walked two and struck out three for the Astros, who logged their first victory since May 25.

Brett Myers racked up his 13th save with a 1-2-3 ninth to secure Houston's win.

Justin Maxwell bashed a two-run, pinch-hit homer while Jason Castro and Marwin Gonzalez each added two hits and an RBI for the Astros.
