HOUSTON -- Bud Norris pitched into the ninth inning and Chris Carter homered for the second straight game to help the Houston Astros to a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

The victory gives Houston its third series win of the season. The Angels dropped to 4-13 away from Anaheim.

Marwin Gonzalez and Jimmy Paredes hit RBI doubles in the third before Carter connected on his team-leading eighth homer in the fifth inning to make it 3-0.

Norris (4-3) allowed nine hits and one run in eight-plus innings.

He was chased by consecutive singles by Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to start the ninth.

Closer Jose Veras retired Mark Trumbo before plunking Josh Hamilton to load the bases. But Houston turned its fourth double play of the game to end it and give Veras his fourth save.
