HOUSTON (AP) — Brad Hand pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning and Jeff Mathis hit a two-run double for the Miami Marlins in their 2-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Hand (2-2) struck out four and walked two in a career-high 7 1-3 innings to earn his second straight win. Donovan Solano and Giancarlo Stanton each had two hits for the Marlins, who won their fifth in sixth games.

Miami was able to get to Dallas Keuchel (9-7) in the seventh.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia reached on an error by center fielder Enrique Hernandez. Adeiny Hechavarria hit an infield single with two outs before Mathis drove in both runners with a double.

Bryan Morris got two outs in the eighth, and Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 25th save.
