Astros Cough Up Another Late Lead, Drop Final Game To Arizona 4-2

Final Score: Arizona 4, Houston 2

Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Xavier Nady hit a two-run double in the eighth inning, as the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied past the Houston Astros, 4-2, to complete a three-game sweep at Minute Maid Park.

Juan Miranda capped off a three-run eighth with an RBI single for the Diamondbacks, who have won six in a row. Chris Young also drove in a run.

Josh Collmenter gave up two runs on four hits over a six-inning start for Arizona, which went 6-1 on a seven-game road trip. Aaron Heilman (4-0) pitched one scoreless inning of relief to pick up the win.

Houston starter J.A. Happ allowed one run on two hits over six full frames. Happ also hit his first career home run for the Astros, who went 2-4 on a six- game homestand.
