Wood wins, drives in go-ahead run, Cubs beat Brewers 2-1

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Pitcher Travis Wood drove in the go-ahead run when he walked with the bases loaded in the 13th inning after getting out of bases-loaded jam in the 12th to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.

With the Cubs out of position players, manager Joe Maddon had Wood hit with two outs after the Brewers intentionally walked Miguel Montero to load the bases. Wood drew the walk when Carlos Torres (0-1) missed on a 3-1 cutter, forcing Ben Zobrist home with the go-ahead run.

Wood (2-0) allowed a leadoff double to Jonathan Villar in the bottom of the 13th, and the Brewers later put runners on the corners with one out.

The Cubs' last eligible player, left-hander Clayton Richard came on in relief to get the last out, retiring lefty-hitting Kirk Nieuwenhuis on a groundout for his first career save.
