HOUSTON, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Steve Pearce and Brian Bogusevic each provided run-scoring hits in the ninth-inning Friday in the Houston Astros' 4-3 comeback win over Milwaukee.

Trailing 3-2 entering their final at-bat, the Astros struck for two runs to break a five-game skid.

Ben Wallace drew a leadoff walk from John Axford (4-7), and pinch-runner Tyler Greene stole second, then went to third on a wild pitch.

Pearce knocked him home with a single, tying the score. He took second base on an error by Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and went to third on Scott Moore's long fly-out.

That brought up Bogusevic, who sent a grounder up the middle for the game-winning hit.

Wilton Lopez (4-1) earned the victory with a scoreless top of the ninth after Houston starter Bud Norris had held Milwaukee to two earned runs over seven innings.

Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Brewers, who lost their 10th straight road game -- the club's longest such streak since 1992.
