Cubs beat Astros 5-4 in Houston's NL finale

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs' misery now stretches to 104 years and the Houston Astros will depart the National League with a whimper.     

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.     

Cubs fire 3B coach Pat Listach     

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have fired third base coach Pat Listach.     

Listach was dismissed after the Cubs beat Houston 5-4 in the season finale Wednesday. The Cubs finished at 61-101.     

Listach served as the Cubs' bench coach in 2010 and 2011, and moved to the third base job this year.
