Wood gives up 3 homers as Dodgers lose 3-2 to Cubs in NLCS

CHICAGO (AP) Alex Wood finally returned to the mound Wednesday night. A familiar problem followed him all the way to Game 4 of the NL Championship Series.

Wood surrendered three solo homers in his first start in three weeks, and the Los Angeles Dodgers lost for the first time in this year's playoffs, falling 3-2 to Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs.

The 26-year-old Wood, who had a career-high 16 wins this season, was lined up for Game 4 of the NLDS, but Los Angeles swept Arizona in three games. The Dodgers then took the first three against the Cubs, giving the left-hander a chance to pitch the franchise into its first World Series since it won the championship in 1988.
