Wright Hits Milestone Homer, But Mets Fall to Astros

Jordan Lyles won for the first time in two months and the Houston Astros snapped a seven-game skid Friday night with a 3-1 victory over the sluggish New York Mets, giving Tony DeFrancesco his first win as a major league manager.

Tyler Greene homered and Lyles knocked in a run with his first career double as the Astros (40-86) improved to 4-0 against the Mets this season. Houston, with the worst record in the majors, won for only the eighth time in its last 51 games.

It was the perfect homecoming for DeFrancesco, who grew up in the Bronx and played catcher at nearby Seton Hall. He said he expected about 40 family members and friends in the stands, including his parents, for each game of the weekend series.

David Wright hit his 200th homer for the Mets, who have lost six straight and nine of 11.
