Cubs Vs. Astros Score Update: Rizzo Home Run Gives Chicago Win

With the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros out of any postseason contention at this point, the youth movement for both teams will be key. The Cubs received a huge boost from one of their top young guys, as Anthony RIzzo hit the first home run of his career to propel Chicago to a 3-2 win.

Rizzo, who hit his two-run homer off of J.A Happ in the 5th inning, has been an immediate hit since coming up from the minor leagues. Rizzo now has 4 hits in 15 at-bats. Matt Garza pitched well to earn his 4th win of the season. Garza allowed only two earned runs in 5 innings pitched. Despite allowing nine hits, Garza was able to stay out of trouble to help the Cubs come away with their second straight win.
