   CHICAGO (AP) - Travis Wood pitched impressively into the seventh inning to outduel Lance Lynn, Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run homer and the Chicago Cubs snapped the St. Louis Cardinals' six-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory last night.

   The Cardinals' streak was their longest since an eight-game run July 11-21, 2010.

   Wood (2-3) allowed one run and five hits while striking out eight in 6 2-3 innings for his first win since April 27 at Miami.

   Carlos Marmol relieved Wood with two outs in the seventh and pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings. In the eighth he allowed a single to Yadier Molina and walked Jon Jay before getting out of the inning by picking Molina off between second and third.

   Lynn (5-1) was trying to become the National League's first pitcher to win six games.

CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts says a $500 million deal with the city of Chicago to renovate the nearly century-old Wrigley Field is a milestone.

Ricketts spoke to reporters Monday at Wrigley Field, the day after the deal with the city was announced. The plans include an electronic video screen and more night games. It still needs final approval.

Ricketts says money earned from the proposal would give the team the resources to get to the World Series. He says if the plan is approved the team would "win the World Series" for its fans and players. The last World Series championship for the Cubs came in 1908 - six years before Wrigley was built.

Ricketts calls it a "massive investment" that includes community contributions, like $1 million for a park.
