DENVER, May 30 (UPI) -- J.D. Martinez put Houston in front with an RBI single in the eighth Wednesday and the Astros broke it open in the ninth to down Colorado 6-3.

Houston won on the road for just the seventh time this season.

The game was deadlocked at 2-2 going into the eighth, but Martinez sent a two-out single to center that brought home Marwin Gonzalez from second with the go-ahead run.

Houston then added three runs in the ninth with Carlos Pena hitting a leadoff homer, Gonzalez driving in another score with a squeeze bunt and Brandon Barnes producing an RBI single.

Paul Clemens (3-2) worked 1 2/3 innings of one-hit relief to get the victory. The tiebreaking run was charged to Edgmer Escalona (1-2)
