Chris Johnson put the Houston Astros on his back on Wednesday, belting two home runs and knocking in six as the Astros defeated the New York Mets 8-1, completing the three-game sweep.

Wandy Rodriguez was credited with the win, as the lefty pitched seven innings, surrendering just one run on six hits, walking two and striking out five as he improved to 3-2 on the year. With the strong effort, Rodriguez lowered his ERA on the year to 1.64.

Johnson, as aforementioned, had a career day. Johnson homered twice off of Mets starter Chris Schwinden, belting a three-run shot in the second before adding a two-run homer in the third. Johnson added two more singles and finished the day 4-4 with two homers and six RBI.

Houston shortstop Jed Lowrie finished the day 3-4, with three runs scored. Lowrie is now hitting .329/.427/.500 on the season.

The Astros have an off-day Thursday and will get ready to host the division leading and defending champion St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.
