Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Travis Wood pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings and
the Chicago Cubs finished off a three-game sweep, beating the Houston Astros
by a 3-0 count at Wrigley Field.
Wood (3-3) remained on fire in July, holding Houston to three hits. The left-
hander struck out four and did not walk any, continuing his hot hand after
posting a 2.27 earned run average in June.
Wood even scored the winning run, breaking a scoreless tie in the sixth
after leading off the frame with a double.
Wandy Rodriguez (6-6) was a hard-luck loser for the Astros, allowing three
runs on five hits in seven innings. He struck out three and walked just one
but Houston dropped its fourth straight overall.
