CHICAGO -- Randy Wolf pitched a six-hitter for his eighth career shutout and Ty Wigginton homered Thursday night as the Houston Astros won their eighth straight with a 4-0 victory overthe slumping Chicago Cubs, who've lost a season-high five in a row.
The surging Astros completed a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field
behind the pitching of Wolf and some good defense. Wigginton, an
infielder most of his career, also made a great throw from left
field to cut down a potential Chicago run in the fifth inning.
It is Houston's second eight-game winning streak in less than a
month, matching an earlier one from Aug. 7-14.
