Cubs beat Astros 5-4 in Houston's NL finale
CHICAGO CUBS 5, HOUSTON 4

CHICAGO (AP) -- Bryan LaHair homered and hit a game-winning
single in the ninth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat Houston
5-4 Wednesday in the Astros' National League finale.



In the first series between 100-game losers in the major leagues
since 1962, LaHair homered in the second and broke a 4-all tie
in the ninth against Hector Ambriz (1-1).



Houston went 55-107 and set a club record for losses with one
more than last year. The Astros became the first team with 106
or more losses in consecutive seasons since the 1964-65 New York
Mets.



Houston finished its NL tenure with 3,999 regular-season wins
and 4,134 losses with five ties. The Astros are moving to the AL
West next season, creating three divisions of five teams in each
league.



The Astros was 16-25 under interim manager Tony DeFrancesco, who
took over after Brad Mills was fired on Aug. 18. Washington
third base coach Bo Porter already has been hired as Houston's
manager for next season.



The Cubs, who haven't won the World Series since 1908, went
61-101 for their most losses since dropping 103 games in 1966.



Carlos Marmol (3-3) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the win.



Justin Maxwell hit a tying, three-run homer for Houston in the
eighth off Shawn Camp.



Cubs starter Travis Wood allowed one run, three hits and five
walks in 6 1-3 innings, giving up Carlos Corporan's RBI single
in the first. Wood also chased Astros starter Edgar Gonzalez
with a two-run single.



Gonzalez gave up four runs, five hits and four walks in 3 1-3
innings. Houston pitched 28 consecutive scoreless innings before
LaHair's homer in the second.



Most Cubs' regulars were given the day off. The exception,
Starlin Castro became the first player in franchise history to
play shortstop in all 162 games, and the first major leaguer to
do it since Jimmy Rollins in 2007. Castro's 195 consecutive
games played is the longest active streak in the NL.



NOTES: The Cubs drew 2,882,756 to Wrigley Field, the first time
under 3 million at home since 2003. ... Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano
said he is open to being traded in the offseason if the Cubs
don't plan on contending the next two years. "I just want to
have one more shot to go to the World Series before I (retire),"
Soriano said. The 36-year-old said he will seriously consider
retiring when his contract expires after the 2014 season. He is
slated to make $18 million each of the next two seasons.
