SAN DIEGO, CA -- Lance Berkman hit a three-run homer off Trevor
Hoffman with two outs in the ninth inning and the Houston Astros
rallied for their first win of the season, 9-6 over the San Diego
Padres on Wednesday night.

With the Padres leading 6-5, Hoffman retired the first two
batters before walking pinch-hitter Jose Cruz Jr. on a full-count
pitch. Michael Bourn singled to right and Hunter Pence followed
with a single off the tip of first baseman Adrian Gonzalez's glove
to score Cruz. Berkman drove a 3-1 pitch over the center field
fence for his first homer of the season.
