Norris Scores on Passed Ball in A's 1-0 Win Over Cubs

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Derek Norris scored on a passed ball with two outs in the seventh inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on Thursday.

Dan Straily (5-2) gave up a hit over seven innings after being recalled from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day. He made the start to allow a sore Jarrod Parker to get two extra days of rest.

Norris walked with two outs and went to third on Seth Smith's single. Matt Guerrier (2-4), making his first appearance with the Cubs, threw a strike on the outside part of the plate. Pinch-hitter Eric Sogard swung at the pitch and Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo had the ball glance off his mitt, allowing Norris to score.

Cubs' starter Travis Wood allowed three hits over six innings. He walked one and struck five in recording his third consecutive no-decision. Alfonso Soriano got Chicago's lone hit off Straily.
