HOUSTON -

Houston's prospects got the best of the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Playing a lineup of mostly minor leaguers in their last exhibition game, the Astros beat the Cubs 6-3. The Cubs began the game with most of their regular starters.

Houston right fielder Domingo Santana was a home run shy of the cycle and drove in two runs. Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, the 18-year-old top overall pick in the 2012 draft, went 3 for 4 with a sacrifice fly.

Cubs starter Travis Wood yielded five hits and two runs with a spring-best seven strikeouts in 4 1-3 innings. It was an improvement from his last start when he allowed seven hits and four runs in four innings.

Chicago began taking out its starters in the third inning.
