Cubs Vs. Astros Score Update: Chicago Secures Sweep With 3-0 Win

All the Chicago Cubs needed to pull off their second sweep of the season was a visit from the struggling Houston Astros. The Cubs pitching once again had the Astros on their heels, as they picked up their second shutout of the series with a 3-0 win at Wrigley Field.

Travis Wood was excellent on the mound for the Cubs, pitching seven shutout innings and allowing just three hits to earn his third victory of the season. Wandy Rodriguez was impressive for the Astros, as he gave up just five hits and three earned runs in seven innings.

The Cubs did all of their damage at the plate in the sixth inning, with Jeff Baker driving in two runs and Anthony Rizzo driving in a run as well.
