By  | 

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hiroki Kuroda took a no-hitter into the
seventh inning for the Los Angeles Dodgers before the Houston
Astros broke out for seven hits and six runs in the eighth inning
to pull out an 8-5 victory.
Lance Berkman, Carlos Lee and Hunter Pence had RBI singles
against reliever Jonathan Broxton (1-1), and Brad Ausmus added a
two-run single against the right-hander as the Astros won for the
eighth time in nine games. Houston also completed its first
three-game sweep at Dodger Stadium since September 25-27, 1992.
Michael Bourn capped Sunday's rally with a sacrifice fly, giving
Houston a 7-3 lead.
Geoff Geary (1-1) pitched one inning for the win, and Jose
Valverde got the final out for his eighth save after Doug Brocail
gave up two runs in the ninth.
