Solid Wood does the chopping
Kerry Wood showed he can hit, he can run, he can pitch and he can pirouette. Wood, the Major League leader in strikeouts this season, held the National League's top-hitting team to two hits while striking out 11. His biggest moment, though, was in the sixth, when he smashed a two-run, tiebreaking double to propel the Cubs to victory in Game 1 of the NL Division Series at Turner Field.  Full story >
