Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Marwin Gonzalez homered and the Astros bullpen allowed just one hit over four innings as Houston downed the Seattle Mariners, 3-2, on Tuesday night.

Bud Norris (3-2) lasted just five innings but surrendered just one run for Houston, which snapped a three-game losing streak. Jose Veras pitched a perfect ninth for his second save of the year.

Matt Dominguez sprayed two hits for the Astros, who won despite striking out a combined 15 times.

Hisashi Iwakuma (2-1) was brilliant in the losing effort, striking out a season-best 11 batters. Iwakuma did yield six hits and three runs -- two earned -- in five innings of work.

Kendry Morales had two hits, including his third home run of the season, while Justin Smoak and Michael Morse each went 2-for-4.
