Lackey opposes Wood in middle game of Cubs-Dodgers series

LOS ANGELES -- A pair of right-handers will take the stage in the second game of a three-game series between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

Chicago's John Lackey (4-4, 4.82 ERA) will oppose Brandon McCarthy (4-1, 3.76) after the Dodgers (29-20) took the opening game Friday in a 4-0 win behind another standout performance by Alex Wood.

Wood (6-0) dominated with a two-hitter in five shutout innings and extended his string of scoreless innings to 25 1/3. Wood, who has won his last five games, struck out eight, walked two and hit a batter. He threw 91 pitches, 59 strikes.
