SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Colby Rasmus homered to lead off the seventh inning to help Scott Feldman earn his first win in more than two months, and the Houston Astros held on to beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0 on Wednesday.
Jed Lowrie also homered for the Astros, who stumble back to Minute Maid Park with a slimmer AL West division lead after going 2-7 on their nine-game road trip.
Feldman (5-5) missed 45 games earlier this season with a torn meniscus and had been winless in four starts since coming off the disabled list in July. He combined with four relievers on the five-hit shutout.
The Astros right-hander - winless since May 26 - gave up four hits over six innings, walked one and struck out four while allowing only one runner past second base.
Luke Gregerson pitched the ninth for his 23rd save.
