Cedeno, Martinez Lead Astros Past Cubs 4-3

CHICAGO (AP) - Ronny Cedeno's squeeze bunt scored Justin Maxwell with the tie breaking run in the ninth inning to lead the Houston Astros over the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Saturday.

J.D. Martinez tied the game with a three-run homer in the sixth for Houston. Jose Cisnero (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, escaping a bases-loaded jam in the eighth. Jose Veras earned his 15th save in 18 chances. 

Maxwell hit a leadoff double in the ninth against Kevin Gregg (2-1) and moved to third on Matt Dominguez's sacrifice. Cedeno followed with another sacrifice bunt, putting the Astros ahead.  

Nate Schierholtz hit a solo homer in the fifth to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead. It was his 10th homer this season, setting a career high.
