HOUSTON – Brandon Barnes hit a last at-bat, two-out RBI ground-rule double in the 12th inning to lift the Houston Astros to a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday.
Matt Dominguez singled off former Astro Wilton Lopez (1-2) to start the inning. He was replaced by pinch-runner Ronny Cedeno and he advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt.
The Rockies intentionally walked Jose Altuve with two outs before Barnes connected on a double which sailed into the corner of right field to score Cedeno and give Houston the win.
Paul Clemens (2-2) struck out two in a scoreless 12th for the win.
Carlos Gonzalez drove in a run with a double in the first, and Jonathan Herrera made it 2-0 with a sacrifice bunt in the fourth.
