HOUSTON, June 15 (UPI) -- Jason Castro and Chris Carter each belted a fourth-inning homer Saturday, providing the spark for Houston in its 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Castro's leadoff homer against Chisox starter John Danks broke a 2-2 tie, and one out later, Carter followed with a mammoth solo blast to left.

Brandon Barnes provided what turned out to the game-winning run with an RBI double in the next frame for the Astros, who won a second straight against Chicago.

Lucas Harrell (5-7) notched the decision after yielding three runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings, walking one and striking out seven.

Paul Clemens, Wesley Wright and Hector Ambriz combined for 1 1/3 scoreless relief frames and Jose Veras racked up his 13th save to secure the victory.

Danks (1-3) took the loss, giving up four runs on five hits in six innings.

Adam Dunn hit his 18th homer for Chicago.
