Alex Bregman drove in three runs, including a crucial two-run homer in the seventh inning that lifted the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.

The game was tied 2-2 in the seventh when Chas McCormick reached base due to a throwing error. With two outs, Bregman smashed a pitch from Huascar Brazobán into the left field seats, putting the Astros ahead 4-2.

“Our offense has been hitting well lately and making good contact,” Bregman said. “Even though we didn’t have a lot of runners on base today, we found a way to get the job done.”

The win marked Houston’s seventh consecutive victory at home, bouncing back after losing the final two games of their series in Minnesota last weekend.

Ronel Blanco (9-3) pitched seven strong innings, allowing four hits and two runs while striking out seven, earning the win.

“He’s a gutsy pitcher,” manager Joe Espada praised Blanco. “He competes well and understands the importance of this game. After dropping a series in Minnesota, he gave us exactly what we needed to win.”

Jazz Chisholm Jr. started the game with a home run for the Marlins, and Jesús Sánchez tied it with a solo homer in the seventh before Bregman’s decisive home run.

In the eighth inning, Chisholm singled, stole second base, and then scored on Bryan De La Cruz’s single, narrowing Houston’s lead to one run. Josh Hader pitched a scoreless ninth inning, recording his 16th save of the season.

Miami starter Trevor Rogers pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and two runs, before Brazobán entered the game in relief.
