Morning Box Score: Wood Knocked Out Early; Sox Lose One Quickly

Travis Wood made the NL All-Star team on the strength of his number of quality starts the first half of the season. Wood had one of his shortest outings of the year at Wrigley Field Friday. Wood lasted 3 1/3 innings and allowed four straight one-out walks in the third inning. It was the second-shortest start of Wood's career. Junior Lake continued to impress for the Cubs with four hits.
If you're going to lose, make it as quick and painless as possible. That's what the White Sox did at Comerica Park Friday night as they tied a season-high winless streak at eight games. The game lasted two hours, seven minutes, Tigers starter Doug Fister scattered seven hits over eight innings and the Sox turned a perfect hit-and-run situation into a double play in the eighth inning while wasting a solid seven inning effort from Hector Santiago. (A perfect encapsulation of how the Sox's season has been so far.)
