Pitcher Travis Wood has big hit for Cubs in 13th

MIAMI — Pinch-hitting pitcher Travis Wood hit an RBI double with two outs in the 13th inning, giving the Chicago Cubs a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.

Called on to hit for reliever Carlos Villanueva (3-5), Wood hit a sharp groundball off Jacob Turner (2-5) down the left field line, scoring Junior Lake for the go-ahead run.

Wood, who is batting .250 this season, was 0 for 4 as a pinch hitter entering the game.

Miami's Tom Koehler was near perfect to start, retiring 14 of the first 15 batters. Only Mike Olt registered a hit against the Marlins' starter during that stretch.

But the Cubs overcame a 3-0 deficit in the sixth inning.
