Bogusevic's Grand Slam Leads Astros Over Cubs 6-5
HOUSTON (AP) -- Pinch hitter Brian Bogusevic hit a grand slam in the ninth inning to propel the Houston Astros to 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night and break a season-long seven game losing streak.

J.B. Shuck singled with one out in the ninth off closer Carlos Marmol (2-4) before advancing to second on a wild pitch. Clint Barmes singled and Matt Downs drew a walk to load the bases and bring up Bogusevic.

Houston reliever Aneury Rodriguez (1-4) struck out one in 2-3 innings for the win.

Kerry Wood pitched a scoreless eighth before Marmol blew his eighth save.

Tyler Colvin hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning and Aramis Ramirez added a solo shot in the eighth as the Cubs built a 5-2 lead.
