Chicago Cubs Strand 16 Runners in 4-3 Loss to Houston Astros

July 22, 2010 by  

The three runs scored by the Houston Astros in the 12th inning extinguished the Chicago Cubs’ hope to take another series at home.  The Astros won the rubber game by beating the home team 4-3 in a marathon match of three hours and 46 minutes.

Both starting pitchers of the game, Ted Lilly of the Cubs and Brett Myers of the Astros, brought their best game in the series finale.  However, neither one was implicated in game decision.  They only gave up one run each in this tight game.
