Chris Johnson hit his first two homers of the season while driving in six run as the Houston Astros completed a three-game home sweep of the Mets with an 8-1 win on Wednesday afternoon.

Both of Johnson’s jacks, a three-run shot and two-run homer, came off of starter Chris Schwinden, who lasted just four innings and fell to 0-1. Schwinden is carrying an 11.25 ERA in two starts.

Manny Acosta then allowed three runs on six hits in his two innings of work as his ERA jumped to 9.69.

Wandy Rodriguez (3-2) earned his third straight win with seven innings of six-hit, one-run ball.

Andres Torres, who returned from the DL on Monday, drove in a run in each game of the series.  Ruben Tejada went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .305.

The Mets (13-12) host the Diamondbacks at Citi Field on Friday night.
