Short-handed Astros prep for visit from Cubs

The frustration from Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch was palpable, and not solely from the uneven performance that yielded an unfavorable result Sunday at home against Boston.

His team's health -- as it prepares for the opener of a three-game interleague set Monday against the visiting Chicago Cubs -- was a bigger factor.

For a second consecutive weekend, the Astros proved unable to complete a series sweep of the Red Sox, falling on consecutive Sundays after having already clinched the three-game series. Of note in this series finale was the loss of utility infielder Aledmys Diaz, who, while scoring in the first inning, aggravated a left hamstring strain that sidelined him for several days earlier this month.
