SAN FRANCISCO — Travis Wood pitched a four-hitter over seven innings and had a home run among his two hits in helping the Chicago Cubs complete a three-game sweep in San Francisco for the first time in 20 years, beating the Giants 2-1 Sunday.

Welington Castillo also homered for the Cubs, who won their third straight and five of seven.

Pablo Sandoval drove in a run for the Giants, who have lost four straight and seven of eight.
