Reds Rally to beat Astros

HOUSTON (AP) - Drew Stubbs hit a go-ahead homer as the Cincinnati Reds rallied for three runs in the ninth inning against Francisco Cordero and beat the Houston Astros 4-2 Tuesday night, tying their longest winning streak of the year at six.

The NL Central-leading Reds sent Houston to its eighth straight loss.

Cordero got his first save chance since being acquired in a trade with Toronto last week. Stubbs hit a two-run homer for a 3-2 lead and Xavier Paul added an RBI single.

During the game, the last-place Astros announced they had traded pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to Pittsburgh.
