 width=>>Wood Leads Cubs Past Reds

Travis Wood struck out seven in seven scoreless innings as the Chicago Cubs blanked the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 in the rubber match of a three-game set on Wednesday.

Wood (1-1) yielded just three hits and a pair of walks against his former team, giving the lefty 19 straight innings of scoreless ball over his last three starts against the Reds.

Chicago did all of its damage against Reds starter Jason Marquis (0-1), who was lifted after just four innings.

Anthony Rizzo started the scoring with a two-run homer to right before Marquis recorded an out in the bottom of the first.

Jonathan Herrera added to the lead with an RBI single in the bottom of the second, and Marquis hit Jorge Soler with a pitch with the bases loaded later in the frame to force in another run.

Miguel Montero's sacrifice fly in the fourth inning made it 5-0.

 width=>>Cardinals Down Brewers

Lance Lynn threw five solid innings to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Lynn (1-1) only had one 1-2-3 inning, but he was regularly able to work out of trouble. He allowed a run on six hits and struck out four, and the Cardinals used a parade of six relievers to finish the final four innings.

Matt Holliday drove in two runs, Yadier Molina had three hits, and Matt Carpenter added two.

Wily Peralta (0-1) allowed all four St. Louis runs on 10 hits and a walk in five innings with one strikeout. Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Jean Segura all tallied two hits for Milwaukee.

The Brewers had the tying run reach the plate in the ninth against Trevor Rosenthal, but he induced a flyout from Adam Lind to end the game.
