|Myers Pitches Astros Past Cubs
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Brett Myers allowed one run over six innings, Michael Bourn hit a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh and the Houston Astros beat the Chicago Cubs 3-1 Wednesday to finish off a three-game sweep.
Myers (2-4) won his sixth straight decision against the Cubs, improving to 12-3 with a 2.12 ERA in his career against the Astros' NL Central rivals.
Doug Davis (0-4) matched Myers for six innings, but was responsible for the decisive runs when reliever Sean Marshall gave up Bourn's single with two outs in the seventh. Davis allowed nine hits and struck out five in 6 1-3 innings, his longest outing since April 24 last season.
Davis fell to 3-12 in his career against the Astros.
