HOUSTON (AP) — Hunter Pence had his team-leading 24th homer among his three hits and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-4 Sunday.

Carlos Lee hit his 21st homer of the season as the Astros earned a split of the four-game series against the Dodgers. Lee, Angel Sanchez, Brett Wallace and Jason Castro each had two hits for the Astros, who have won 16 of their last 22 games at Minute Maid Park.

Gustavo Chacin (2-2) wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam with two outs in the fifth to keep the score tied 4-all. He and five other relievers combined for 4 1-3 innings of two-hit ball. Rookie Fernando Abad worked 1 2-3 hitless innings. Brandon Lyon pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 15 save.
