HOUSTON (AP) - Drew Stubbs delivered another huge hit in the ninth inning, launching a two-out, two-run double that rallied the Cincinnati Reds past Houston 5-3 Wednesday night for their season-high seventh straight win.
Stubbs came through with the Reds trailing 3-2. A night earlier, he hit a two-run homer in the ninth that wiped out the Astros' one-run lead.
Both of Stubbs' hits came against former teammate Francisco Cordero (3-7).
The NL Central leaders sent Houston to its ninth loss in a row, tying a season worst.
The Reds maintain a 2.5 game lead over second place Pittsburgh.
