Astros vs. Cubs final score: Chicago drops 100th game of season

The Chicago Cubs managed only two hits against Houston Astros starter Lucas Harrell and three other relievers, falling 3-0 on Monday night at Wrigley Field. The loss was the Cubs' 100th in a season that will be mercifully coming to an end in a couple of days.

Harrell moved to 11-11 on the season for Houston, striking out seven and scattering just the two hits over six innings. David DeJesus and Anthony Rizzo were the only Cubs to tally hits on the night, while Alfonso Soriano was the only other Cub to reach base.

Jason Berken took the loss for the Cubs, giving up two runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings. Berken gave up an early home run to Astros outfielder Fernando Martinez, and that proved to be all Houston would need. The 28-year-old Berken fell to 0-3 on the season.

The Cubs and Astros, who now have both reached the 100-loss mark, will square off on Tuesday night at 7:05 CT.
