The Chicago Cubs End Their Winning Streak with a Loss to the Astros: Fan's Take (Yahoo! Contributor Network)
The Chicago Cubs need to start another winning streak. After being swept by the Washington Nationals to begin the current road trip 0-4, the Cubs battled back to win four consecutive games. Unfortunately the team dropped a 1-0 game to the Houston Astros on Tuesday, September 11, and must now win the series finale to return to Chicago with a 5-5 record on the trip. For a team that has not had many positive stretches this year, Tuesday's loss was a tough defeat in a game that had no earned runs scored.
