LOS ANGELES, May 19 (UPI) -- Manny Ramirez, James Loney and Casey Blake each drove in two runs Tuesday and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Houston 7-3 for their ninth straight victory.

Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda (5-1) limited the slumping Astros to three runs on seven hits.

A trio of relievers each turned in scoreless 1-inning stints after Kuroda was lifted for pinch-hitter Garret Anderson.

Carlos Lee homered and drove in all three runs for the Astros, who have lost five straight. Bud Norris (2-5) took the loss after giving up six runs on seven hits.

Lee's RBI single in the third inning tied the game but Los Angeles struck back with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth on Ramirez's two-run single.

Blake closed out the scoring in the eighth with a solo home run.
