Astros Beat Cubs in Matchup of 100-Loss Teams
CHICAGO (AP)--Bud Norris pitched six shutout innings, Jason Castro homered and the Houston beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0 Tuesday night in a matchup of 100-loss teams.

Houston (55-106) threw its third straight shutout and won for the fifth time in six games. The Astros have already matched last year's franchise-worst loss total with one game left.

Norris (7-13) scattered four hits and won back-to-back starts for the first time since May.

Chris Volstad (3-12) took the loss for the Cubs, who fell to 60-101.
