HOUSTON (AP) - Omar Infante drove in the go-ahead run with a 10th-inning double and Brian McCann added insurance with a grand slam later in the inning to give the Atlanta Braves an 8-2 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

Infante's hit bounced low on the wall in left field and scored Rick Ankiel to put Atlanta back on top 3-2 and give closer Billy Wagner (6-2) the win after he blew a save in the ninth.

Brandon Lyon (6-5) intentionally walked Melky Cabrera to set up a run-scoring single by Alex Gonzalez that pushed the lead to 4-2 and chased Lyon. McCann's pinch hit slam off Jeff Fulchino landed in the stands in right field and put the game out of reach.

Tommy Hanson started for the Braves, going 7 innings and giving up just one run  on two hits.
