Pena's homer in 10th lifts Astros over Brewers
HOUSTON (AP) -- Carlos Pena hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning, giving the Houston Astros a 7-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.
Carlos Corporan struck out but reached on a wild pitch with one out in the 10th and J.D. Martinez followed with a double. Pena then launched the first-pitch homer off Michael Gonzalez (0-3) to the second deck in right field.
It was a sloppy game that featured six unearned runs and four errors.
Hector Ambriz (2-4) pitched a scoreless 10th to help Houston take two of three in the series.
