Wandy Rodriguez (pictured) won his 11th game and Carlos Corporan drove in three runs in the Houston Astros’ 9-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.

Carlos Lee also had a double, single and an RBI, and Jason Bourgeois had three hits and an RBI for the Astros, who had six consecutive hits in a six-run third inning. Lee has now driven in at least 80 runs for the 13th straight season, second only to Alex Rodriguez among active players.

The Astros’ six runs and seven hits in the third inning both tied the team’s single-inning highs this season.

Astros manager Brad Mills told he was happy with the offensive output, “The guys just kept having some good at-bats and putting it together. That’s how you have big innings when you don’t hit the long ball. It’s always nice to see something go your way one time. It was nice to be able to build on that and keep the inning going.”

Rodriguez (11-10) went six innings, giving up three runs on seven hits and striking out seven. Rodriguez is the only Astros’ starter with a winning record.

John Lannan (9-12) took the loss for Washington.
