HOUSTON (AP) — Jed Lowrie hit a two-run homer and J.A. Happ threw six sharp innings before three relievers completed the Houston Astros’ 4-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night.

The win wrapped up a two-game sweep for the Astros, who took the opener 8-3.

Happ (3-3) yielded seven hits and walked one, managing to escape jam after jam as the Brewers stranded eight while he was on the mound.

Chris Snyder, batting .179 this season, had two hits, including an RBI single after Lowrie’s homer in Houston’s four-run fourth.

Jordan Schafer drove in a run later in that inning with a single and also had a double in the third.

Milwaukee starter Shaun Marcum (2-2) allowed four runs, three earned, and a season-high nine hits in five innings.
