Weeks' inside-the-park homer helps lead Milwaukee past Houston 5-2

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rickie Weeks hit an inside-the-park home run and George Kottaras added a solo shot to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Randy Wolf (8-9), who was forced to leave his last start on Sunday against the Astros in the seventh inning when he was hit on the wrist by a ball hit by Hunter Pence, got the victory. He gave up two runs on nine hits in 6 2-3 innings.

Kameron Loe got the final out of the seventh inning. Loe, Zach Braddock and Todd Coffey combined to pitch a scoreless eighth inning. Trevor Hoffman pitched a scoreless ninth inning to get his sixth save of the season in 11 chances. It was his first save since May 7 against Arizona and the 597 of his career.

Brett Myers (8-7) took the loss for the Astros.
