Astros use 6-run sixth inning to top Rockies, 7-5

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Chris Carter and Matt Dominguez hit consecutive homers during a six-run sixth, Lucas Harrell won for the first time in six starts and the Houston Astros beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Thursday to sweep the two-game series at Coors Field.

J.D. Martinez had a career-high four hits Houston, which swept a series for the first time this season and won three of four against Colorado this week. The Astros last won two straight four weeks ago against the Los Angeles Angels.

Harrell (4-6) allowed four runs -- three earned -- in 5 2-3 innings to pick up his first win since beating the Yankees on April 29.

Hector Ambriz got his first save.

The Astros trailed 3-1 after five, but Juan Nicasio (4-2) and the bullpen couldn't hold it.
