HOUSTON -- Scott Moore hit an RBI single with none out in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Houston Astros to a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Jose Altuve led off the 10th with an infield single off Jim Henderson (0-1). Marwin Gonzalez and Steve Pearce followed with walks to load the bases before Moore singled, giving Houston consecutive wins for the first time since June 26-27.

The Astros won in their final at-bat for the second straight game.

Milwaukee rallied three times to tie the game, sending it to extras on Jean Segura’s RBI groundout in the ninth inning. Rickie Weeks led off the ninth with a double off Wilton Lopez (5-1).
