WASHINGTON (AP) – The Houston Astros set a franchise record by hitting three triples in a five-run first inning, backing starter Bud Norris with a season-high 17 hits on the way to an 11-4 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

Norris pitched six innings for the win, and Brian Bogusevic and Jason Castro each had three hits for Houston.

The Nationals entered with a major league-leading 1.92 ERA, but they allowed more runs or hits than they had in any of their first 13 games. Washington had won eight of nine.

Houston, which had lost four straight, also set a season high for runs and hit three triples in an inning for the first time in its 51-year history. It was the 13th time the Astros had three triples in a game.
