Lance Berkman's three-run homer was one of 16 hits used by the Houston Astros in a 9-4 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

The win came a few hours after the Astros lost the completion of a suspended game from May, 11-10 in 11 innings — a result that gave former Nationals reliever Joel Hanrahan the victory.

In the regularly scheduled game, All-Star Hunter Pence and Jeff Keppinger drove in two runs each for the Astros, who used a four-run sixth inning to overcome a two-run deficit and take the lead.

Keppinger's triple scored Geoff Blum and Ivan Rodriguez, tying it at 4 and chasing Nationals starter John Lannan (6-6). Michael Bourn hit a run-scoring triple, and Miguel Tejada added an RBI single.
