The pitching matchup scheduled for the series finale will be Cubs left hander Travis Wood as he will oppose Giants erratic right hander Tim Lincecum Wood is 6-7 on the current season in 20 starts with an ERA of 2.95 and WHIP of 1.07 in 128 1/3rd innings. Lincecum has struggled through a 5-10 year in 20 starts with an ERA of 2.95 and WHIP of 1.38. Wood has been very effective for Chicago as the hurler has allowed two earned runs or less in six of ten games and only once in that period did he allow more than four runs. In 49 road innings this season Wood has an ERA just over three runs. Lincebum is coming off a dreadful start as the right hander surrenders 8 earned runs and nine hits in 3 2/3rd innings in a home loss to the Cincinnati Reds last Monday night. Two starts back Lincecum labored with 148 pitches. The Cubs have won both games in this series and in their process of winning they allowed the punch less Giants offense two runs on Friday in game on and in game two of this series on Saturday the Chicago Cubs pitching staff shut out San Francisco. Lack of offense has been an issue all season long for the defending World Champions who have scored less than two runs in five of their past seven games.
