Carter's 2 homers lead Astros over Rays 4-1

HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Carter homered twice, including a go-ahead three-run shot in the seventh, to back seven strong innings from Bud Norris and give the Houston Astros a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night.

The victory breaks a 5-game skid for the Astros, who had been shut out in their last two games.

Carter broke a 22-inning scoring drought for Houston with his solo homer in the second off Roberto Hernandez (4-10) that tied it 1-1. He connected on a full-count pitch from Jake McGee on his second home run to make it 4-1 in the seventh.

Norris (6-7) allowed six hits and one run with five strikeouts to break a 3-game losing streak. Jose Veras allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth for his 17th save.
