MLB: Houston 7, Milwaukee 4

HOUSTON, May 2 (UPI) -- Miguel Tejada, Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee hit consecutive homers in a four-run sixth Friday, boosting the Houston Astros past Milwaukee 7-4.

Houston overcame a four-run deficit in a game that saw all but one of the runs score on home runs.


Roy Oswalt (3-3) got the win, surviving six innings while giving up four runs on six hits with four walks.

After Milwaukee had grabbed the early lead, Houston cut its deficit to 4-2 on a two-run homer by Hunter Pence in the fifth.

With starter Carlos Villanueva (1-3) still on the mound in the sixth, Kazuo Matsui led off the inning with an infield single. Tejada then hit an 0-1 pitch over the wall in left to tie the game.

Berkman and Lee followed with homers to drive Villanueva from the game. Pence added his second homer of the night in the eighth, a solo shot off David Riske.

Jose Valverde struck out two of the three men he faced in the ninth to record his sixth save.
