Houston, TX (Sports Network) – Jason Michaels singled in the 11th to score Humberto Quintero as Houston took down Washington, 3-2, in the rubber match of a three-game set.

Quintero singled to right to open the inning then moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from Angel Sanchez. Michael Bourn followed with a base hit to center that moved Quintero to third before Michaels singled to end the game.

Clint Barmes tallied two hits and a run scored while Carlos Lee and Humberto Quintero each added an RBI for the Astros, who won their first series since it took two of three from the Dodgers June 17-19.

Wilton Lopez (2-4) took the win after tossing two scoreless frames.
