HOUSTON (AP) -- Aaron Hill hit a three-run homer in a nine-run fifth inning, Chris Young had four hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks routed the Houston Astros 12-4 on Saturday night. Young also drove in three runs and finished a triple shy of the cycle. Justin Upton added two hits for Arizona and Ryan Wheeler hit his first major league home run. Patrick Corbin (5-4) went seven innings, allowing four runs and seven hits with five strikeouts. Corbin has three straight wins in four outings since moving back into the rotation at the beginning of August. He has gone at least six innings in each of those starts. Jordan Lyles (2-10) lost his sixth straight, giving up seven runs -- five earned -- on eight hits and three walks in four-plus innings. In his career against Arizona, he has allowed 22 runs -- 17 earned -- in 14 2-3 innings. Houston has lost three straight and eight of 11. The Astros have the worst record in the majors at 39-82. The Diamondbacks chased Lyles in the fifth when six straight batters reached base. Arizona sent 12 men to the plate during the inning against three Houston pitchers. Hill capped the outburst with a homer to left field off Chuckie Fick to extend Arizona's lead to 10-3. Gerardo Parra started the inning with a double before Hill walked. Upton followed with an RBI single to cut Houston's lead to 3-2, and Paul Goldschmidt singled to tie it. After Miguel Montero walked to load the bases, Young singled to give Arizona a 4-3 lead and Xavier Cedeno relieved Lyles. Cedeno didn't fare much better, walking Stephen Drew to force in a run before two more scored on an error by second baseman Jose Altuve. Tyler Greene hit a solo home run in the bottom half to trim Arizona's lead to 10-4. Wheeler connected in the seventh, a solo shot off Fick to make it 11-4, and Young added a solo homer off Rhiner Cruz in the eighth. Chris Snyder put the Astros ahead 3-1 with a two-run homer in the fourth. Houston tied it at 1 in the third on Greene's run-scoring single. Arizona took the lead in the second on an RBI double by Young. NOTES: Arizona OF Jason Kubel did not start for a second straight game after being scratched Friday with a sore neck. ... Diamondbacks 3B Chris Johnson did not start for the second time since being traded to Arizona from Houston. He is hitless in his last 16 at-bats. ...
