3/29 Kerry Wood’s quick work
Kerry Wood pitched Thursday for the first time since May 18, and threw five pitches and that was enough. The right-hander entered the Cubs game in the fifth with one on and two outs, threw five pitches to James Darnell and struck him out. That was enough. As Wood came off the field in Peoria, he got a fist pump from pitching coach Chris Bosio and a handshake from manager Dale Sveum. Wood was expected to pitch two more times before the Cubs break camp.
