CHICAGO -- Travis Wood was so dangerous at the plate Monday night that Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson actually changed pitchers before the Cubs starter could bat with the bases loaded in the sixth. Wood hit a three-run homer, drove in four runs and held the Diamondbacks to one run in seven innings to lead the Cubs to a 5-1. Wood (1-2) gave up a run and six hits over seven innings. His four RBIs and nine strikeouts matched career highs. "It feels good that they kind of respect you up there and that youre doing your job," Wood said. "Im not out there in the nine hole just to fill a spot. Youve got to try and be the best you can at it." Bronson Arroyo (1-2) allowed five runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings for Arizona. The Diamondbacks have lost nine of 10 and have the worst record in the majors (5-17). Arroyo and Wood were plenty familiar with each other having been teammates on the Cincinnati Reds from 2010-11. Wood tagged Arroyo with his three-run homer in the second inning and RBI double in the fourth. With the bases loaded in the sixth, Gibson called on J.J. Putz to face Wood, and Wood hit the ball right back to the right-hander to start an inning-ending double play. "Its supposed to be the free out in the lineup," Arroyo said. "Tonight it obviously wasnt, I mean, (Wood) pushed across almost all the runs. Hes always been good at the plate, thats something you just dont want to let beat you, but thats the way it went tonight." Wood, with a grin, admitted he was swinging hard for another home run when he faced Putz. The right-handed swinging, lefty-throwing Wood was unsure if an opposing manager had ever made a pitching change with him at the plate. Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he has not previously seen a reliever brought in to face a pitcher. "He was a one-man wrecking crew," Renteria said of Wood. "I can see where (Gibson) was looking a guy who was swinging the bat today. His sense was he needed more velocity and Putzs split." Welington Castillo hit a two-out bloop single to right field to score Starlin Castro from second for a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Ryan Kalish followed Castillos RBI single with a single of his own to extend the inning. Arroyo fell behind in the count 1-0 before Wood hit a hanging slider for a three-run shot into the left field bleachers. It was Woods seventh career home run. Wood drove in another run in the fourth with an RBI double that nicked off Arizona centre fielder Tony Campanas glove near the wall. Arroyo stranded Wood at second by getting Emilio Bonifacio to ground out to end the fourth, but Woods fourth RBI gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead. "Hes a good guy and a good pitcher," Wood said of Arroyo. "I was fortunate enough to get him tonight." Diamondbacks left fielder Mark Trumbo hit his MLB-leading seventh home run in the seventh. Trumbo hit the first pitch he saw from Wood into the centre field bleachers to cut the Cubs lead to 5-1. One of the Diamondbacks best chances to score against Wood came in the sixth. Arroyo led off with a broken-bat single to left field and Chris Owings singled to put runners on first and second with nobody out. But Wood struck out Hill, got Paul Goldschmidt to fly out to right field and forced Martin Prado to pop out in foul territory to strand the runners. "(Wood) was hitting that outside corner and he came out throwing his cutter inside early," Gibson said. "Mixing in his changeup, just hitting the corners. He tired a little bit there late, we had a good opportunity and we only got one run out of it." The Cubs had a prime opportunity to blow the game open in the sixth. However, they failed to score with the bases loaded and no one out. NOTES: The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 1 minute because of rain. ... Cubs manager Rick Renteria said RHP Carlos Villanueva will remain in the starting rotation and make his next start Friday against Milwaukee. ... RHP Jake Arrieta (shoulder stiffness) pitched 5 2-3 innings at High-A Daytona, likely his last rehab start before being activated from the 15-day disabled list. Arrieta allowed five runs (three earned) on five hits with seven strikeouts and two walks. He allowed three home runs. ... Diamondbacks CF A.J. Pollack was not in the lineup Monday after leaving Sundays game against the Dodgers in the sixth inning with stiffness in the left side of his neck. Pollack will be going to see a chiropractor and is day to day. ... OF Gerardo Parra was given the day off Monday. Parra is hitting .160 in his last six games. "Hes played every game and you see certain things in his game, hes just grinding down a little bit," Gibson said. "Everything weve been going through, its been tough on everybody and you just try and rotate the guys in and give guys a break."

Toronto (6-4-3, 21 points) ran its unbeaten streak to six as it resisted late Chicago pressure to earn a 1-1 tie at soggy Toyota Park. Midfielder Jackson scored Torontos lone goal in the 42nd minute, heading a feed from forward Jermain Defoe past Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson. "Any point on the road is a good point, especially when youre down to 10 men," said Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen, whose team remains unbeaten (3-0-3) in league play since a May 3 loss to New England. "They (the Fire) did very well in the second half and pushed us hard. We had to defend and we defended very well." Forward Luke Moore was issued a red card and ejected in the 29th minute after a mid-air collision with Fire midfielder Chris Ritter and Toronto played the final hour with 10 men. Toronto FC was also outshot 20-7 and trailed in possession by a lopsided 62-38 per cent. Yet Chicago mustered only one score - Harry Shipps sixth goal of the season in the 56th minute. "We did enough to win the game, when its 10 men against 11 we should win the game," said Fire coach Frank Yallop, whose team is winless in five games. "We had our chances, its frustrating. We had themm.dddddddddddd Thats our problem right now, we cant seem to win a game." Numerous other Chicago shots went wide, fell short or were stopped by Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik, who had five saves. In the 73rd minute an apparent go-ahead goal by Fire defender Bakary Soumare was waved off on an offside call. Toronto was playing its second game in five days while Chicago was among the last Major League Soccer teams to restart the season after a lengthy World Cup break. "This point is very valuable," Nelsen said. "It proves that away from home weve been down to 10 men twice and weve managed to get something out of the game and that was extremely important." Moores ejection came after a midfield battle for possession with Ritter. Moore appeared to elbow Ritter in the right temple. Ritter temporarily left the game but was back within three minutes with his his head bandaged. The ejection includes an automatic suspension for Saturdays home game with D.C. United. Toronto was missing goalkeeper Julio Cesar, who helped carry host Brazil into the World Cups final eight, as well as recent midfielder acquisition Michael Bradley, expected back soon from a U.S. team stint. Wednesdays game was played under steady drizzle and unusually cool temperatures.
