Astros Vs. Cubs Final Score: Chicago Edges Out Houston 3-2

The Houston Astros dropped their second straight game to the Chicago Cubs on Saturday in a close 3-2 game. The Astros got on the board first and led 2-0 after scoring a run in each of the third and fourth innings.

The first run was scored when center fielder Jordan Schafer hit a RBI single to centerfield which scored J.D. Martinez, and the next run came in the fourth inning on a RBI single by Martinez which scored Chris Johnson.

Astros starter J.A. Happ was holding the Cubs bats in check up until the bottom of the fifth inning. Happ proceeded to allow three runs to come across the plate including what would eventually be the game-winning play, a two-run homer by Anthony Rizzo which put the Cubs up for good 3-2.

The Astros offense was held to just one hit over the final 3.2 innings by four Cubs relievers.
