HOUSTON, TX (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended their longest road losing streak in 42 years, with a 5-3 victory at Houston on Sunday. Kameron Loe put runners on second and third in Houston's final at-bat, but he got out of the jam when Marwin Gonzalez grounded out to third base to end the game. Loe got his first save of the year and the third of his career, as the Brewers earned their first road win since July 8th to end an 11-game losing string away from Miller Park. Yovani Gallardo picked up the win, his 10th straight against the Astros. He struck out eight in seven and two-thirds innings, giving up three runs on nine hits and a pair of walks to improve his overall record to 11-8. Jordan Lyles took the loss, as he gave up four runs in seven frames. The Brewers took the lead for good in the fifth inning on a fielder's choice by Rickie Weeks that scored Jean Segura, breaking a 1-1 tie. Tyler Greene doubled and singled. And Gonzalez drove in a pair, as Houston fell just short of sweeping its first series since May. Corey Hart hit the game's only homer, but Milwaukee was out-hit 10 to 9. Still, the Brewers ended their longest road losing streak since their first year in Milwaukee in 1970. The Brew Crew opens a three-game series at Colorado tonight. Right-hander Mike Fiers goes against Rockies' southpaw Jeff Francis. Coverage on WHBL begins at 7:05.
