WATCH: Travis Wood helps Chicago Cubs sweep White Sox with Grand Slam

  • David Whitlock

Chicago Cubs LHP Travis Wood broke open the game on his own behalf, clearing the bases in a classic afternoon tilt at Wrigley Field.  It was Wood’s second home run of the season and his batting average is now approaching .300.  Watch Wood club this Jake Peavy fat pitch (87 not moving right over the middle) into the first row over the ivy to give his team an insurmountable 5-run lead (via MLB.com and WGN)

Baseball is a strange, strange game, as the Chicago Cubs came into the Windy City Series having won only 1 of their last 7, while the Chicago White Sox came in having won 5 of 6 and 9 out of 12.  The Cubs won all 3 games (one rain out) by a composite score of 24-6.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
