While Wood was struggling, Chicago's offense was covering for him as best it could. The Cubs scored seven runs in the top of the first inning but Seattle had the game tied by the end of the third inning. But that's all the M's would get, as Chicago's relievers settled things down.

The Cubs scored the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth, added three in the eighth, and one more in the ninth.
