Astros beat Cubs in matchup of 100-loss teams
The season-ending series between NL Central clubs marks the first meeting of century-loss teams in the majors since 1962, when the Cubs played the New York Mets.
Houston (55-106) threw its third straight shutout and won for the fifth time in six games. The Astros have already matched last year's franchise-worst loss total with one game left.
Norris (7-13) scattered four hits and won back-to-back starts for the first time since May.
Chris Volstad (3-12) took the loss for the Cubs, who fell to 60-101.
