Justin Germano picked up the win for the Cubs, pitching six and 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk. Germano struck out six.

Scott Moore recorded Houston's lone RBI, as his second inning homer gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Chicago then scored seven unanswered runs to take a commanding 7-1 lead.
