Cubs finish off sweep of Astros
Wood notches longest outing of season
CHICAGO — Travis Wood pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning, Anthony Rizzo hit a go-ahead single and the Chicago Cubs completed a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros with a 3-0 win on Sunday.
Before the game, Houston Astros first baseman Carlos Lee said he was still undecided on whether he will accept a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was 1 for 4 with a double in the ninth.
Wood (3-3) held the Astros to three hits in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out four and didn’t allow a walk in his longest outing of the season.
The Cubs scored three times in the sixth, with Rizzo hitting an RBI single off Wandy Rodriguez (6-6).
