HOUSTON -- Brad Mills breezed into the postgame interview room after Saturday's game with a huge grin planted on his face.
"It's nice to come in here with a smile," the Houston manager said after watching his team break a season-long nine-game losing streak with a 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Scott Moore homered for the second straight day and J.D. Martinez and Jose Altuve had three hits each as the Astros took advantage of the first-inning ejection of Zack Greinke to get the victory.
Greinke (9-3) entered the game looking for his 10th win. Instead he was gone after four pitches -- ejected after spiking the ball following a close play at first base.
Manager Ron Roenicke was also tossed for arguing the call, and the Brewers were forced to piece together the game with six relievers.
Greinke, who was ejected for the fourth time in his career, called the incident a mental mistake.
