Chicago Cubs Vs. Houston Astros Final Score: Cubs Routed, 10-1

The Houston Astros raced out to a 10-0 lead on their way to an easy 10-1 victory at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. Chicago never made a game out of it and struggled to put up any offense, collecting only six hits.

Starting pitcher Lucas Harrell looked sharp for the Astros, winning his tenth game of the season. He gave up all six of Chicago's hits, but also racked up seven strikeouts and walked only two batters over eight innings. Rhiner Cruz came on to close out the game in the ninth inning.

On the other side, Cubs' starter Chris Volstad was roughed up for four runs, including a home run, in only five innings. Things, however, were even worse for reliever Lendy Castillo, who gave up five runs in less than an inning.

Chicago will hope to rebound on Wednesday.
