The Cubs begin a three-game set with Houston on Monday.

The Chicago Cubs head to Houston on Monday coming off a weekend sweep at the hands of the White Sox, which pushed the Cubs' losing streak to six games overall. The Cubs scored a total of six runs in three games against their crosstown rivals, and if they're going to turn the page and start the week off on a positive note, they're clearly going to need more help from the offense.

Matt Garza (2-1, 2.58 ERA) is scheduled to start on the mound for the Cubs in Game 1, while Bud Norris (3-1, 3.58) is set to start for Houston.
