SAN DIEGO (AP) -- J.A. Happ and the Houston bullpen ended a long road losing streak for the Astros.
Happ and three relievers combined on a five-hitter, Scott Moore drove in two runs and Houston beat the San Diego Padres 2-0 Monday night to snap a 13-game slide away from home.
Jose Altuve doubled and scored twice to help Houston stop its longest road skid since dropping 14 straight in 1997.
"Everybody has been talking about what's been going on on the road and so forth, but we just needed to play good baseball, and we did tonight," Astros manager Brad Mills said.
Happ (7-9) allowed a double in the first to Alexi Amarista but retired his next 12 batters. The left-hander gave up four hits over 6 1-3 innings while striking out four and walking one.
"I was trying to work quick and get ahead of those guys," Happ said. "I just wanted to keep the ball down in the zone, and for the most part we were able to do that. I felt like I was definitely hitting the corners pretty good tonight."
