Young (8-4), who didn't allow a hit besides the two homers, improved to 3-0 over his last four starts.
Enrique Hernandez and Marwin Gonzalez, the No. 8 and 9 hole hitters in Houston's lineup, hit the home runs to give Houston a 2-0 lead through five innings. Seattle rallied in the sixth against Brad Peacock, however, to climb in front.
Peacock (2-5) was charged with four runs on six hits, departing with one out in the sixth. Anthony Bass, who was activated off the 15-day disabled list prior to the game, tossed 1 2/3 one-run innings in relief.
