Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs, David Ross hit a two-run double in his 2012 debut and the Atlanta Braves beat the Houston Astros 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Ross, the backup catcher, drove in Chipper Jones and Dan Uggla with a double to center in the fourth, giving the Braves a 3-1 lead. Heyward, who finished with three hits, added an insurance run with his solo shot to right in the eighth.

The performance by Ross came a night after Jones came off the disabled list and hit a two-run homer to lead the Braves to their first win of the year after an 0-4 start.

J.D. Martinez homered and drove in two runs for the Astros, who committed four errors.
