HOUSTON — Carlos Correa drove in two runs with a double to back up a strong start by rookie Brandon Bielak, and the Houston Astros extended their winning streak to a season-high five games with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies.
Bielak allowed one hit and one run in six innings for the win in his third MLB start.
The 24-year-old, who made two relief appearances before moving into the rotation, walked four and struck out four.
The Rockies wasted a good starting pitching performance from Kyle Freeland and fell to 13-9 on the season, managing just two hits the entire game.
A Trevor Story home run in the third inning accounted for their only run of the night.
