Travis Wood Rocked, Randy Wells Rolls in Loss to Brewers

Randy Wells turned in an outstanding performance against the Brewers on Wednesday afternoon, going three scoreless innings, Travis Wood, not so much.  Wood was lit up like a Christmas tree for the second time this spring, ending the day with a 1/3rd of an inning pitched giving up 6 runs (5 earned), on 3 hits, 2 walks, while striking out one.

At the plate the Cubs didn’t have much going either, Ian Stewart had an RBI double, Castro also had a double on the day, Baker had the only other RBI.
