Astros rally past Rockies behind Lee's 3 hits

DENVER (AP) - Carlos Lee had three hits, including a tie-breaking RBI single in the eighth inning, and the Houston Astros rallied from a three-run deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Colorado starter Jeff Francis left after seven innings with a 3-2 lead but the Rockies' bullpen could not protect it.

Pinch-hitter Michael Bourn singled off Matt Belisle (1-2) to start the eighth. He went to second on a balk and advanced to third on Tommy Manzella's one-out infield single. Franklin Morales relieved and Lance Berkman reached on an RBI fielder's choice. Rafael Betancourt relieved and Lee hit a broken-bat single to give the Astros their first lead.

Wilton Lopez (3-0) picked up the win in relief with a 1-2-3 seventh. Matt Lindstrom got three outs for his 14th save.
