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