Jonathan Sanchez lost his no-hit bid, his shutout and a chance at his first win since June 29 when the Astros rallied for a pair of runs in the sixth inning, as the Giants went dormant after Fred Lewis drove in Ivan Ochoa in the third. Sanchez, who allowed only two runs, has now lost five straight.
