Sports Minute: Here is the latest Illinois sports news from The Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Quarterback Mike Glennon will try to bounce back from a rough outing when the Chicago Bears host the Pittsburgh Steelers. While Glennon threw for 301 yards and a late touchdown against Tampa Bay, he also committed three of Chicago's four turnovers in a 29-7 loss to the Buccaneers.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian is starting to make believers across the NFL. The former part-time starter at Northwestern has now started the equivalent of a full NFL season. His numbers would be impressive for a first-round pick, much less a seventh.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Blake Snell gave up two hits in seven shutout innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended the Chicago Cubs' season-best seven-game winning streak 8-1. The Cubs, who had not lost since being swept by the Milwaukee Brewers in a three-game series in Chicago on Sept. 8-10, are scheduled to open a four-game series in Milwaukee on Thursday night. They hold a 3 1/2-game lead over the Brewers.

HOUSTON (AP) - Yuli Gurriel had three hits while Brad Peacock threw six solid innings and the Houston Astros extended their winning streak to six games with a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Mike Montgomery took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning, Kyle Schwarber hit his 28th home run and the Chicago Cubs extended their winning streak to a season-high seven by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 in manager Joe Maddon's return to Tropicana Field. Maddon managed the Rays from 2006-14, then left to manage Chicago and last year led the Cubs to their first World Series title since 1908. Chicago entered with a 3½-game lead over second-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.

HOUSTON (AP) - Jose Altuve homered, Alex Bregman hit an RBI double and the AL West champion Houston Astros extended their winning streak to five games with a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Collin McHugh allowed one run and five hits with five strikeouts in five innings for Houston.
