Day after 16-inning win, Cubs lose in 10

CHICAGO (AP) — Travis Wood focused on his career-high 11 strikeouts after he wrapped up another winless month.

Wood lasted six innings after a shaky start, and the Chicago Cubs went on to a 6-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

“I’ve never had 11 before,” Wood said. “Definitely take something from that and hopefully build off of it.”

Wood also had a career-high 119 pitches, but remains winless in eight starts dating to a 3-0 win at Philadelphia on June 15. He was charged with four runs and eight hits.

“All in all, Travis ended up grinding through that ballgame and giving us a chance,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “Obviously it was good enough for us to come back and tie the game.”

Brandon Barnes hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 10th for Colorado, which had lost three in a row. Charlie Blackmon had three hits, including a run-scoring double.

“We got some timely hits tonight,” manager Walt Weiss said. “We got a few early, and then of course Barnesy had the big one late.”
