Cubs' Ramirez Misses Game with Strained Quad
CHICAGO (AP) -- Cubs slugger Aramis Ramirez missed Monday's series opener with Houston with a strained right quad and the length of his absence is uncertain.

The Chicago third baseman, who homered for the second straight game in Sunday's 18-5 loss to the Mets, was replaced by veteran infielder Jeff Baker in the starting lineup as the Cubs and Astros met in a Labor Day matinee at Wrigley Field.

Ramirez leads the Cubs with 22 home runs and 73 RBIs.
