 HOUSTON (AP) - Mark Reynolds' seventh homer of the season put Cleveland on top in the seventh inning and the Indians held on for a 5-4 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday.
The home run by Reynolds, who also homered in Cleveland's 19-6 win Saturday, was one of four solo homers for the Indians, who took two of three in the series.
Carlos Santana, Drew Stubbs and Yan Gomes also added home runs for the Indians.
The game was tied at 4 in the seventh inning before the two-out full-count homer to left-center by Reynolds off Hector Ambriz (0-1). Fernando Martinez hit a two-run homer in the first inning for Houston in his 2013 debut.
Cody Allen (1-0) got the final out of the sixth and Chris Perez pitched a scoreless ninth for his second save in three chances.
