HOUSTON (AP) - Rookie Chris Johnson hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning and the Houston Astros rallied to beat the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Thursday night.

Johnson, who struck out in his first two at-bats, drove a full-count pitch from Ted Lilly (8-10) to the train tracks in left field for his eight homer, erasing a two-run deficit. Hunter Pence singled to extend his hitting streak to 10 games and Carlos Lee walked to set up Johnson’s one-out drive.

Bud Norris (7-8) struck out seven in six innings for Houston, which has won three straight.

The Dodgers have dropped six straight and eight of nine to continue to fade from playoff contention.
