Dbacks beat Astros 5-4 on Calhoun's double in ninth

PHOENIX (AP) Kole Calhoun lined a two-run double in the ninth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied to beat the Houston Astros 5-4 Thursday night to win their first series of the season.

"It's bases loaded, nobody out, we need one run, there's obvious pressure there," said Calhoun, who's from nearby Tempe and went to Arizona State. "I just tried not put too much on it, just go out and have fun in the moment, let the results just take care of themselves."

Arizona trailed 4-3 after Alex Bregman hit a two-run homer off Stefan Crichton in the eighth inning. Junior Guerra (1-0) worked around an error in the ninth inning and the Diamondbacks loaded the bases against Ryan Pressly (0-1) in the bottom half.
