Travis Wood tossed six scoreless innings, allowing three hits, against the Reds on Monday.

Rapid Reaction: Cubs 1, Reds 0

CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on Monday night. Here’s a quick look at the game. How it happened: Anthony Rizzo hit a walk-off home run off Pedro Villarreal in the ninth inning on a chilly night during which neither team mustered offense. Rizzo led off the frame with his 31st of the season to center field, then was mobbed by teammates at home plate. Travis Wood pitched six scoreless innings, giving up just three hits, and the bullpen finished the shutout.

Wood knocked around

CHICAGO – This was another low point in a difficult season for Travis Wood.

Wood struggles while Jokisch shines

CHICAGO -- Two pitchers possibly headed in opposite directions took the mound on Sunday for the Chicago Cubs -- though one was only making his major league debut. Eric Jokisch isn’t the household name that Travis Wood is, after the latter made the All-Star team a year ago, but he shined in his first appearance despite the Cubs losing 10-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wood, on the other hand, continued a season-long slump that saw his ERA rise to 5.

About-face by lefty Travis Wood perplexes Cubs

Exactly two years ago Sunday, Travis Wood was mired in a personal eight-game losing streak as he faced the Pirates in Pittsburgh. That worst stretch of his career ended with a 12-2 Cubs victory, and Wood went on to transform himself into an All-Star pitcher in 2013. Where that All-Star has gone in 2014 is one of this season’s painful chapters. “Last year, he was commanding his fastball and cutter more,’’ catcher Welington Castillo said. “That’s a big key...

Giants latest to find holes against Wood

CHICAGO – Travis Wood isn’t following up his breakout 2013 season the way he planned. The Chicago Cubs left-hander tossed 200 innings and delivered a solid 3.11 ERA last year, but through 26 starts in 2014, he’s seen his ERA climb to 4.91 and his walk rate jump to a career-high 9.7 percent. Though the walks were down in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants, Wood still didn’t get the results he and the Cubs were hoping for, giving up four runs on eight hits in six innings in a 5-3 loss that left them with a split.

Rapid Reaction: Giants 5, Cubs 3

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs dropped the nightcap of a doubleheader Thursday, missing out on a sweep in a 5-3 defeat by the San Francisco Giants. A quick look: How it happened: The Giants got on the board early, striking quickly off Cubs starter Travis Wood. Wood allowed a lead-off single to Angel Pagan, then a one-out walk to Buster Posey, before giving up an RBI single to Pablo Sandoval. Wood then hit the next batter to load the bases with just one out, before retiring the next two batters without allowing any further damage.
