Wood Mills Whitesox To Sawdust

The final match-up for these two MLB clubs, and it looked like the Whitesox didn’t make it out of the Wood mill without becoming bits of sawdust. Travis Wood got off to a good start, yielding 2 runs, 5 hits over 6. Chicago’s AL team managed 1 more run in the 9th off of an improving Cubs bullpen.

While the Sox got their 3 for the day, the big story is the continuation of Cubs pitchers, and their quality at bats.

Travis Wood made contact with a pitch served up by, The Sox starter, Jake Peavy with the bases loaded in the 4th, and sent one to the fans in left field at Wrigley Field  for a grand slam HR. Nate Schierholtz, and Luis Valbuena also, contributed 4 baggers.

The day’s work summed up: 8 runs on 11 hits for the Cubs who are, as of late, moving them around, and cashing in the dividends. The Whitesox had 3 runs on 8 hits. Each team gets 1 error on the boards.

The Cubs won all 3 contests to win the 2013 Crosstown Cup regardless of who wins the 4th game, called because of rain, which will be made up on a date to be announced.
