ATLANTA, April 27 (UPI) -- Gregg Zaun drove in four runs Saturday night -- three coming on a bases-clearing double in the fifth inning -- giving the Houston Astros a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
Zaun, who entered the contest with just three RBI this season, lined an 2-2 pitch from Kevin Millwood into the right-centerfield gap for a 5-2 lead.
The backup catcher also delivered an RBI triple off Darren Holmes in the ninth. Zaun had a chance for an inside-the-park homer as right fielder B.J. Surhoff fell down and appeared to injure himself while trying to field the ball in the corner.
But Surhoff recovered and threw to second baseman Marcus Giles, whose relay beat Zaun at the plate.
Dave Mlicki (3-2) picked up the win, allowing three runs -- one earned -- and five hits over six innings with two walks and four strikeouts.
Millwood (2-3) could not follow up Tom Glavine's dominant performance on Friday, surrendering all five runs and six hits over six innings.
Rookie Morgan Ensberg led off the fifth with a double before Julio Lugo walked. Mlicki struck out attempting to bunt, but Craig Biggio reached on a infield single, loading the bases and setting the stage for Zaun to deliver the key hit of the game.
The Braves got back a run in the bottom half on Surhoff's RBI single, but Mlicki avoided further trouble by getting Vinny Castilla to ground out.
