CHICAGO -- Roy Oswalt allowed four hits and came within two
outs of a shutout and the Houston Astros ran their winning streak
to six games with a 3-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday.
The Cubs have lost three straight, all at home - their first
three-game skid at Wrigley Field since August of last year. They
remained 4½ game ahead of the Brewers in the NL Central after
Milwaukee lost 4-2 to the Mets.
