HOUSTON (AP) Brian Bogusevic's RBI single in the ninth inning lifted the Houston Astros to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
It was the first win this season for Houston in its last at-bat and breaks a five-game losing streak. It was Houston's first walk-off win since last Sept. 26, according to STATS LLC.
The Astros won for the fifth time in 39 games. The only team since 1900 to lose at least 35 times in a 39-game span was the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics, who finished 36-117 under Hall of Fame manager Connie Mack, according to STATS.
Houston trailed 3-2 entering the ninth and the two runs meant the eighth blown save for John Axford (4-7).
Wilton Lopez (4-1) struck out two in a perfect ninth for the win.
The Brewers have lost 10 straight on the road for the first time since 1992.
