And the Crosstown Classic belongs to the Cubs. Boom. Face.
The conditions weren’t exactly working in his favor, but Travis Wood managed yet another solid outing. With his arm. With his bat, he was far better than solid. But we’ll get to that.
The Cubs’ bats put the wood to the White Sox yet again, and gave them a four-game winning streak for the first time this year. It’s another good day on the North Side in a season that could use a few more.
The only negative for the day was the first earned run of the year given up by Kevin Gregg … which came after he’d struck a guy out looking for the third out. Twice. Didn’t get either call. Whatever. You’re not bringing me down today, blue.
