HOUSTON, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Scott Moore's single chased home Jose Altuve with the winning run in the 10th inning Saturday, handing the Houston Astros a 6-5 win over Milwaukee.

Altuve notched an infield hit to lead off the frame against Jim Henderson (0-1) and the Astros then loaded the based with walks issued to Marwin Gonzalez and Steve Pearce.

Moore followed by lifting a flair hit to shallow left field, knocking in the game-winning run as Houston clinched its three-game set.

Pearce finished 3-for-4 with three RBI and Tyler Greene homered for the Astros, who also won in walk-off fashion in Friday's series opener.

Wilton Lopez (5-1) earned the victory despite allowing Jean Segura's game-tying RBI groundout in the ninth.

Norichika Aoki delivered a two-run double for Milwaukee, which dropped its 11th straight road game.
