Cubs 2, Oakland 1
A dominant Kerry Wood silenced the bats of the A's despite heat and elevation at Phoenix Municipal Stadium Thursday. His six and one third innings reminded me of his regular season starts, with four hits, one walk, a hit batter, and six strikeouts. Wood is the kind of pitcher the Angels should have pursued (i.e., Vazquez instead of Colón), but didn't. Oh, well. Eric Chavez hit a solo shot to provide the only A's run, while the Cubs scored on an unlikely double by Alex Gonzalez, and a defensive miscue on a Sammy Sosa single that cost the A's both a run and, at least temporarily, the services of Mark Ellis.
