Cubs take advantage of 7 errors, beat Bucs
PITTSBURGH – Travis Wood gave up only one hit over six innings, and the Cubs stopped a six-game losing streak Friday night with a 12-2 win over the mistake-prone Pittsburgh Pirates, who made seven errors in their worst defensive night in over a quarter-century.
Wood (5-12) ended an eight-game skid of his own, striking out five and walking three to win for the first time in more than two months.
Starlin Castro had three hits, including the 500th of his career, and drove in four runs for the Cubs. Alfonso Soriano added three hits and three RBI as the Cubs took full advantage of one of the worst defensive nights in Pittsburgh’s 130-year history.
