Rapid Reaction: Giants 2, Cubs 0
A quick look at the Chicago Cubs' 2-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday at AT&T Park.
How it happened: Travis Wood allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings, but the Cubs offense stalled again. Ian Stewart and Reed Johnson each had two hits, but that was all the Cubs could muster against Giants starter Barry Zito.
What it means: The Cubs lost their 10th consecutive road game for the first time since Sept. 13-30, 2000.
Outside the box: The Cubs fell to 2-11 this season against lefty starters.
Up next: The Cubs send Jeff Samardzija (5-3, 3.09 ERA) to the mound in the series finale on Monday at 2:45 CT. The Giants will counter with Ryan Vogelsong (3-2, 2.36 ERA).
