NEW YORK, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Brett Myers fanned six batters in seven shutout innings Saturday, boosting the Houston Astros to a 4-1 decision over the New York Mets.
Myers (10-7) baffled the Mets on six hits and walked only one in the outing, in which he set a club record by going into at least the sixth inning in his 27th straight start.
Brandon Lyon tossed a scoreless ninth to nail down his ninth save of the season.
Carlos Lee staked the Astros to a lead they wouldn't relinquish with a first-inning RBI single and added a two-run homer in the fifth as Houston evened its three-game series with the Mets at one win apiece.
Mets starter Johan Santana (10-9) absorbed the loss, surrendering four runs on eight hits over seven innings. He failed to pitch a complete game for the first time in four starts.
