By  | 

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Matt Dominguez hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Houston Astros won back-to-back series for the first time in nearly two months with a 7-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Dominguez tied his career high with four hits in his native Southern California, while L.J. Hoes had his first career homer among his three hits in the major league-worst Astros' fourth win in six games.

After Houston blew an early three-run lead, Dominguez homered on the next pitch after Angels reliever Juan Gutierrez (0-4) intentionally walked Carlos Corporan.

Brett Oberholtzer (3-1) pitched six effective innings during Houston's sixth win in seven games at Angel Stadium.

Mike Trout had two hits for the Angels before leaving in the sixth inning with right hamstring tightness.
