Justin Maxwell belted a pinch-hit, two-run homer as the Astros crushed the winless Braves, 8-3.  Maxwell was added to the roster prior to the game after being claimed off waivers Sunday.

Travis Buck laced a two-run double for Houston, which improved to 3-and-1.

J.A. Happ struck out five over six innings to get the win.

Brian McCann and Tyler Pastornicky plated a run apiece for Atlanta, which fell to 0-and-4.  Brandon Beachy allowed four runs, only one of which was earned, over five frames to take the loss.

Beachy also knocked in a run in the setback.
