Cubs beat Astros 5-4 in Houston's NL finale
Obviously there's no winner in a season finale between a pair of 100-loss teams.
Bryan LaHair homered and hit the winning single in the ninth inning, and the Cubs beat the Astros 5-4 Wednesday in Houston's final game before switching to the AL next season.
In the first series between 100-game losers in the major leagues since 1962, LaHair homered in the second and broke a 4-all tie in the ninth against Hector Ambriz (1-1).
The Cubs, who last won a World Series in 1908, went 61-101 for their most losses since dropping 103 games in 1966.
