McCann blasts Astros in 10th

Atlanta Braves' Brian McCann smiles as he watches the ball go over the wall for a three-run home run in the 10th inning to get ahead of the Houston Astros in a baseball game on Saturday, June 11, 2011, in Houston. The Braves won 6-3.


    HOUSTON — Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning, lifting the Atlanta Braves to their fifth straight win, 6-3 over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
    McCann's shot to right field off Brandon Lyon scored Jordan Schafer and Dan Uggla to give him 501 career RBIs and put Atlanta on top 5-2. Schafer singled before Uggla walked.
    The Astros have lost seven of eight.
    Lyon (3-3) struggled to throw strikes in his second appearance since coming off the disabled list this week.
    He also gave up a homer in Friday's 11-4 loss to the Braves.
    Chipper Jones hit his second double after McCann's homer to chase Lyon and scored on a two-out single by Eric Hinske to make it 6-2.
