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.
