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.
