Young Powers Nationals Past Astros

By  | 

WASHINGTON -- Dmitri Young launched a go-ahead, three-run
homer in the sixth inning as Washington pulled out a 4-to-3 win
over Houston.

The Astros led 2-to-1 before Young slugged his ninth homer of
the season. He leads the Nationals with a .339 average and 52
R-B-Is.

The blast came off Woody Williams, who has surrendered a
National League-high 22 homers this season. Williams is 4-and-11
after allowing four runs and six hits in six innings.

Saul Rivera is 4-and-2 after allowing one hit in an inning and
a-third of scoreless relief.

Chad Cordero notched his 16th save with a scoreless ninth.

Carlos Lee had two R-B-Is for the Astros.
