Garza Pitches Into 9th, Cubs Beat Astros 3-1
The subject of trade speculation, Garza (2-1) allowed four hits and struck out eight in eight-plus innings for his first win since beating Arizona on May 31. Garza, who threw seven scoreless innings last Sunday against the Mets but did not get a decision, walked Jose Altuve to begin the ninth and was replaced by Kevin Gregg, who earned 11th save in 11 tries.
Chris Carter broke up Garza's shutout bid with a leadoff homer in the seventh. Carter's 15th home run was a sharp line drive to right-center.
