5/7 Extra bases

This and that …

* Travis Wood will be making his 100th career start Wednesday. He has a 2.92 ERA (20 ER/61 2/3 IP) in 10 Interleague starts for the Cubs, going 3-3 in those outings. He’s given up three or fewer earned runs in all 10 starts and two or fewer earned runs in seven of those, including each of his last four. Wood has a 2.19 ERA (6 ER/24 2/3 IP) in his last four starts against the AL dating to June 28 of last season.

* Wood’s 2.92 Interleague ERA as a Cub is third-best all-time in franchise history. Matt Garza’s 2.60 ERA ranks first amongst Cubs hurlers.

* Cubs designated hitters have batted .280 (142-for-508) with 23 home runs and 89 RBIs in 128 games at AL ballparks. The 23 homers have been hit by 13 players, including a franchise-record six by Alfonso Soriano.
