By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Danny Valencia homered, Chris Tillman threw seven solid innings and the Baltimore Orioles ended Houston's six-game winning streak with a 4-1 win over the Astros on Tuesday night.

Brandon Barnes had a solo homer in the sixth for the Astros, who entered the game with the longest winning streak in the majors. Tillman (5-3) allowed four hits and a run and tied a career-high with eight strikeouts in seven innings. He bounced back from his last start where he was tagged for a career-worst four home runs against the Nationals. Jim Johnson struck out two in a scoreless ninth for his 19th save.

Houston starter Lucas Harrell (4-7) yielded five hits and two runs - one earned - with a season-high six strikeouts in seven innings.
