Recap: Chicago Cubs vs. Houston

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Lucas Harrell struck out seven over six scoreless innings to guide the Houston Astros to a 3-0 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday.

Harrell (11-11) allowed just two hits and one walk to pick up his team-best 11th win.

Fernando Martinez went 2-for-3 with a homer and scored twice while Scott Moore and Matt Dominguez each drove in a run for the Astros, who avoided their 107th loss of the season.

"It's good to see we're finishing strong and not packing it in," Astros catcher Jason Castro said.

Jason Berken (0-3) gave up two runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings to absorb the loss for Chicago.

The Cubs have dropped eight of their last nine and reached 100 losses for the first time since 1966.

"It's something we didn't want to be apart of, but unfortunately it happened tonight," Berken said of the dubious mark.

Martinez gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the second after smacking his sixth homer of the season over the wall in right field.

In the sixth, Martinez singled then scored when Dominguez tripled to left field for a 2-0 advantage.

Houston added one more in the eighth when Moore knocked in Brandon Barnes with a base hit to center field.

Astros reliever Wesley Wright recorded the final out in the eighth before twirling a perfect ninth to earn his first save since 2008.
