Alberto Gonzalez of the San Diego Padres looks skyward after hitting an RBI single during the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Houston Astros at Petco Park on June 5, 2011 in San Diego, California. The Padres won 7-2.
Chase Headley extended his career-high hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI double and the San Diego Padres won three consecutive home games for the first time this season with a 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.
By taking three in a row from the Astros after dropping the series opener Thursday night, San Diego won just its second home series this season. The Padres still have the National League's worst home record at 12-21.
San Diego scored three first-inning runs to give Mat Latos (4-6) an early lead.
Latos labored through five innings, allowing two runs on six hits with three strikeouts and two walks.
