Travis Wood Shaky; Wells, Lopez Shine – Wrigley Field 3/10/12

Posted on 10 March 2012 by Lou

Travis Wood made an interesting spring debut in the Cubs 5-1 win over the White Sox on Friday.  Wood pitched just 2 1/3 innings, giving up 1 ER on 3 hits and 2 walks.  He definitely did not have the best command and he looked out-of-sync on the mound.  Randy Wells got Wood out of a jam in the 3rd when he got Paul Konerko to hit into an inning-ending double play in his 1st batter-faced.  He then tossed 2 more scoreless innings allowing just 1 hit in his outing.  Rodrigo Lopez followed that up with 2 more scoreless innings with 1 K.

The Cubs scored 5 runs on only 8 hits, so it was a productive number of hits for the Cubs.

There is definitely a different vibe this spring in Mesa.  Let’s hope they can continue to build some momentum this spring and then carry that over into the regular season in April…
