HOUSTON (AP) - Jimmy Paredes singled and scored an unearned run in the third inning and the Houston Astros beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on Tuesday night.

It was an otherwise tough night for the second baseman, who committed three errors. Paredes has started the last three games at second base with All-Star Jose Altuve out with an abdominal strain.

Houston starter Jordan Lyles (4-11) scattered two hits and struck out five in five innings and five relievers completed the shutout. Wilton Lopez allowed two hits in a scoreless ninth for his fourth save.

The last error by Paredes came in the seventh inning, and interim manager Tony DeFrancesco lifted him for Altuve to start the eighth.

Cubs starter Justin Germano (2-7) allowed three hits and tied a career high with eight strikeouts. He lost his fifth straight start.
