Chris Carter hit a three-run homer to lead the Houston Astros over the Texas Rangers 6-5 in the Alamodome on Friday night.

Carter's drive off Texas starter Matt Harrison cleared the right-center fence 360 feet from home plate at the Alamodome, designed primarily for football and special events such as the NCAA Final Four.

Rangers designated hitter Adrian Beltre hit his first homer of the spring in the second inning, almost in the same spot as Carter's, to cut the Astros' lead to 4-1.

Michael Choice hit a two-run shot to trim Houston's lead to one with nobody out in the ninth, but the Astros retired the next three batters to end it.

Houston starter Jerome Williams gave up one run on three hits and struck out two in three innings.

Harrison allowed four runs and five hits in three innings. He walked three and struck out two.
