HOUSTON -- Carlos Lee drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals.
Lee's single, that flew just over the head of Lastings Milledge,
scored Kaz Matsui and gave Houston its fifth straight victory.
Matsui walked and stole second in the ninth before Joel Hanrahan
(0-2) intentionally walked Lance Berkman. Jesus Colome came on in
relief and Matsui advanced to third on a wild pitch before Lee's
hit. Lee also had the game-winning RBIs in Tuesday's win over
Houston closer Jose Valverde (4-1) pitched a perfect ninth for
the win Wednesday night.
Ryan Zimmerman had two homers on Tuesday.
