HOUSTON - Carlos Lee hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth as Houston rallied for a 6-4 win over the Washington Nationals on Thursday.

Before Lee came up to bat, the Astros had tied it on Cristian Guzman's error in right field. Lee drove an 0-1 pitch into the left-field porch for the Astros' second win in their last at-bat in three days. On Tuesday, Lance Berkman hit a two-run single in the ninth to lift the Astros to an 8-7 win.

Michael Bourn started Thursday's comeback with a double to center. After Jeff Keppinger grounded out, Berkman drove a sinking liner that dropped at Guzman's feet, allowing Bourn to score.
