Bud Norris did not escape the fourth inning for the Astros, lasting just three and 1/3 innings. Norris allowed six runs on eight hits, while walking three and surrendering three home runs, as he picked up his 10th loss of the season.
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.
Brandon Barnes grounded into a double play in the seventh, scoring Moore.
The Astros will return home to host the Arizona Diamondbacks, starting on Friday.
