|Myers Beats Cubs With Help From Video Review
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Brett Myers benefited from a reversed homer call to beat the Chicago Cubs again and Clint Barmes had a two-run single to help the Houston Astros to a 3-2 victory Sunday.
With Chicago down by a run in the eighth and Starlin Castro on first, Carlos Pena's drive to left was initially ruled a two-run homer. The call was overturned after umpires reviewed video of the play. Pena was given a double and Castro was put on third base, then Marlon Byrd flied out to end the threat.
Myers (6-13) held Chicago to two runs _ one earned _ over 7 2-3 innings under a steady drizzle on a cool day at Wrigley Field. He improved to 13-3 lifetime against the Cubs.
Myers outpitched Ryan Dempster (10-13), who overcame a shaky start to throw seven innings.
