The San Francisco Giants wrap up this three-game series against the Chicago Cubs this morning at Wrigley Field as they attempt to avoid yet another sweep.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be left-hander Alex Wood, who enters this morning’s game with a 4.35 ERA, 4.78 FIP, with 37 walks to 63 strikeouts in 80.2 innings pitched. His last appearance was in relief in the Giants’ 7-3 loss to the San Diego Padres on Friday night, in which he allowed one run on three hits with a walk and a strikeout in three innings.

He’ll be facing off against Cubs left-hander Jordan Wicks, who makes his third major league start today, entering this morning’s game with a 1.80 ERA, 3.36 FIP, with four walks to 12 strikeouts in 10 innings. His last start was in the Cubs’ 6-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, in which he allowed one run on five hits with three walks and three strikeouts in five innings.
