While Wood got through his final two innings of work without incurring any further damage, Astros starter Dallas Keuchel exited after allowing his only two runs in the third inning. John Buck started the top of the third with a home run. Eury Perez followed with the first of his two doubles and scored on Freeman's game-tying single.
Chad Qualls, Josh Fields and Tony Sipp all produced scoreless relief outings for the Astros. Former Houston reliever Jose Veras enhanced his bid for a spot in Atlanta's bullpen by tossing a scoreless fifth inning.
Up next: Roberto Hernandez will continue his push to secure the final spot in the club's starting rotation when the Astros travel to Bradenton to face the Pirates at 12:05 p.m. CT at McKechnie Field.
