HOUSTON, April 12 (UPI) -- David Ross put Atlanta in front for good with a two-run double in the fourth inning Wednesday and the Braves went on to down Houston 6-3.

The Braves have won twice in a row after losing their first four games of the season.

Jason Hayward had two RBI for the Braves, driving in a run with a single in the second that made it a 1-1 game and also delivering a solo homer in the eighth.

The double by Ross gave Atlanta a 3-1 lead in the fourth and the Braves tacked on a run later in that inning on a successful squeeze bunt by Jack Wilson.

The win went to Randall Delgado (1-0), who worked five innings while giving up two runs on five hits. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth for his second save.

Wandy Rodriguez (0-1) was touched for four runs on five hits in five innings to take the loss.
