How it Happened: Travis Wood did his part on the mound and at the plate before the bullpen finished off the Pirates -- barely -- to take the opening series of the season. Wood scored the Cubs first run when Starlin Castro singled him home after he got a base-hit in the third inning. His six innings on the mound were as good as Jeff Samardzija's eight on Monday. He gave up just one hit and two walks -- and no runs. Nate Schierholtz hit a 2-run home run in the 9th which turned out to be the game-winning hit.
