Astros Vs. Cubs Final Score: Houston Swept With 3-0 Loss On Sunday

The Houston Astros suffer a three game sweep at the hands of the Chicago Cubs with a 3-0 loss on Sunday. Wandy Rodriguez cruised through the first five innings before running into trouble in the sixth.

Rookie Anthony Rizzo struck again bringing home Chicago's first run with an RBI single in the sixth. Jeff Baker followed with a double that scored both Rizzo and Starlin Castro to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead.

Travis Wood took it from there holding the Astros to just three hits in 7 2/3 innings of work to pick up his third win of the season. Rodriguez takes the loss allowing five hits and three runs in seven innings to fall to 6-6 on the season. Carlos Marmol picks up his eighth save of the season with a scoreless ninth.

Jose Altuve was named to the National League's All-Star team prior to the game and went 1 for 4 in his return to the lineup from a hamstring injury.
