Astros Beat Cubs, Rallying for Six in Ninth
CHICAGO (AP) -- Cubs closer Carlos Marmol blew his third save of the season, allowing six runs in the ninth inning as the Houston Astros beat Chicago 7-3 Tuesday night.

Matt Downs' pinch-hit, two-run double tied the game and Michael Bourn singled in the go-ahead run off Marmol (1-2). Hunter Pence added a three-run shot for the Astros.

Jordan Lyles tossed seven brilliant innings in his Major League debut, but committed a throwing error in the eighth which cost him a chance to earn his first big league victory.

Fernando Rodriguez, Jr. (1-0) got one out to earn his first career win.
