Wood hit an inning-ending flyout with the bases loaded in the second, and Alfonso Soriano grounded into an inning-ending double play with two on in the third.
"Wood pitched really well today. In the first seven innings we didn't have too many good at-bats," Stults said. "But we were able to battle and then come up big in that eighth inning."
NOTES: Chicago's Anthony Rizzo was the only left-handed hitting position player in either lineup in a game started by two left-handed pitchers. ... Cubs pitcher Matt Garza said he felt "great" after his rehab outing Wednesday at Double-A Tennessee. Garza, who threw 42 pitches in his first appearance since July 21, is expected to pitch again Monday for Triple-A Iowa and will be evaluated after his third start to determine whether he is ready to return from the disabled list. ... The Padres recalled RHP Brad Boxberger from Tucson and optioned rookie LHP Robbie Erlin to the Triple-A team. Boxberger appeared in 24 games last year for San Diego, going 0-0 with a 2.60 ERA. ... Cubs RHP Kyuji Fujikawa threw before Thursday's game and is expected to pitch Sunday for Triple-A Iowa. Fujikawa has been on the DL since April 13 with a right forearm strain. ... Black said the proposed renovations to Wrigley Field would be welcomed but he also praised the visitor's clubhouse for its "coziness." He said he likes the smell of the tunnel to the field, though he said it "isn't very good."
