Sunday, May 3, 2009. (AP) -- Michael Bourn had three hits, including a seventh-inning single to drive in the go-ahead run, as the Houston Astros beat the Braves 7-5 Sunday and won a series in Atlanta for the first time in five years.

Bourn's bunt single was the first of four straight hits for the Astros in a three-run sixth inning. He broke a 4-4 tie by driving in Geoff Blum with a single off Peter Moylan in the seventh.

Bourn then stole second and third and scored on Carlos Lee's sacrifice fly.

The Astros took two of three for their first series win at Turner Field since May 7-9, 2004.
