Last updated on Tuesday, April 28, 2009

(CINCINNATI, OH) - The Houston Astros won their tenth-straight game at Great American Ball Park as they defeated the Cincinnati Reds 4-1.

The game was tied heading to the ninth when Hunter Pence hit a two-run double off Reds closer Francisco Cordero.

Lance Berkman, who has keyed many of Houston's wins during the streak, hammered a ball into the stands off Reds starter Johnny Cueto.

It was the 20th home run Berkman has hit at Great American, the most by any visiting player.

Cincinnati scored its lone run on a Joey Votto single in the sixth.
