Don Cardwell took the loss for the Cubs, lasting only 2 2/3 innings and giving up five earned runs.
The Cubs only bright spot of the day was a homer by Ernie Banks.
Yesterday the Houston Astros played their final game as a member of the National League. Like their first game, they faced the Cubs, though this time it was in Chicago. And this time, the Cubs won.
Bryan LaHair had a walk-off hit in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Cubs a 5-4 victory. And with that, the Astros are off to the American League West, leaving the Cubs to the bottom of the National League Central. I think I'm going to miss having the Astros around.
