Wes Helms, Hanley Ramirez, Jeremy Hermida and Mike Jacobs all homered for the Marlins. Ramirez and Helms both had three runs batted in. Helms was replacing Miguel Cabrera, who was not in the starting lineup for the first time this season.

Scott Olsen (7-4) won for the first time in exactly one month after giving up three runs on six hits with four walks and six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Olsen came into the game 0-1 over his last four outings.

Lance Berkman had two RBI and Chris Burke had three hits for the Astros, who blew a 3-0 lead to lose for the fifth time in their last seven games.
