AP Sports Writer

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Kyle Tucker hit a tiebreaking two-run home run in the eighth inning and Carlos Correa’s three-run shot in the fourth ended a 22-inning scoreless streak for the Houston Astros, who beat the scuffling San Diego Padres 6-3. Tucker homered with two outs off Emilio Pagán into the deck atop the right field wall, his 23rd. Alex Bregman was aboard on a single. The AL West-leading Astros were coming off consecutive shutout losses to the Mariners. They hadn’t scored since the eighth inning of a 4-3 win at Seattle on Monday. Correa snapped the streak when he homered off Jake Arrieta.
