Travis Wood pitched exceptionally well tonight, allowing just four hits and a walk in eight innings, while striking out five. Unfortunately, one of those hits was a two-run homer by Brandon Phillips, and that was all it took to give the Reds the game.
The game marked the third straight at Wrigley in which the Cubs were shut out. Oof.
