Wood picked up the win to move to 4-3, as he threw 3.1 shutout innings in relief of injured starting pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada.

Wood struck out four, walked three and allowed just one hit. He has allowed three runs in 13 innings (2.08 ERA) with 13 strikeouts since moving to the bullpen on May 16th. Given his success and his experience, Wood makes sense as the replacement should the injured deltoid that forced Wada out linger. Wada will be evaluated on Tuesday, so we'll know more about Wood's role then.

Wood has been serviceable in the bullpen since he made the switch a couple of weeks ago. In five appearances, he has given up one run on four hits and four walks in four innings. He has struck out six in that span. Expect him to stay in the pen until the Cubs get desperate for another starter.
