      Dodgers SP Alex Wood struggles in loss to Rockies

      Dodgers starting pitcher Alex Wood struggled Sunday, giving up eight runs on 11 hits and two walks through 5 1/3 innings in a 12-5 loss to the Rockies. Wood had been on a mini tear as of late, giving up just two runs and posting a 11:0 K:BB in his previous 14 1/3 innings, a trend which he appeared to carry over through three innings against the Rockies. The wheels fell off in the fourth inning, however, as the 24-year-old gave up four runs --- three from a Nolan Arenado home run --- and was removed shortly thereafter. While nothing has been announced, Wood's latest debacle may have given Brett Anderson the No. 3 spot in the postseason rotation.

      Dodgers SP Alex Wood goes eight innings for the win Wednesday

      Dodgers starting pitcher Alex Wood (11-10) was brilliant Wednesday, as he allowed one hit and no walks across eight innings, while striking out five in a 2-0 win over the Rockies. The Rockies were clearly tired after their 16-inning marathon Tuesday, and Wood took advantage big time. Wood also did his club a big favor by going so deep into this game after the bullpen had to use so many arms the night before. It was a surprise that he didn't complete the game, as he had just 78 pitches through his eight innings. In any case, it's his best start of the season and a great sign going forward. The lefty is lined up for two starts next week beginning with the Diamondbacks on Monday.

      Dodgers SP Alex Wood knocked out in second by Arizona

      Who would like to have his Friday night start back? Alex Wood would. The Dodgers left-hander was absolutely mashed at Arizona. He surrendered eight runs in 1 2/3 innings before his merciful removal. He walked one and fanned one. Wood faltered from the start and never recovered. He allowed a three-run homer to Welington Castillo and RBI trible to Chris Owings in the first and two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt in the second. The two runners he left on base also crossed the plate. He had allowed no more than three runs in any of his previous six starts. But his Friday dud lowed his record to 10-10 and raised his ERA from 3.51 to 3.81.

      Dodgers' Bolsinger starting Friday to give rotation an extra day of rest

      Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger will start Friday's game against the Padres, manager Don Mattingly announced after Wednesday's game against the Giants. "We've been wanting to slip him into the rotation to either move somebody forward or to give someone an extra day," Mattingly said, per "Just if somebody needs a blow, kind of looking at all our guys individually and what's best for them." Mattingly said they don't plan to skip anyone in the rotation, so all the starters (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Brett Anderson, Alex Wood and Mat Latos) will get an extra day of rest moving forward. Bolsinger's last MLB start was July 29. He is 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts this season. "You can anticipate he's going to be in this rotation for at least a turn," Mattingly said.

      Dodgers SP Alex Wood no match for Arrieta in strong effort

      Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood became a footnote in history Sunday night. He was the losing pitcher in a no-hitter. Wood allowed two runs on six hits in six innings to the Cubs, but simply couldn't keep up with counterpart Jake Arrieta. Wood walked one and struck out seven. It marked the first time he walked fewer than two betters since July 9. His only major mistake wound up over the fence, courtesy of Kris Bryant, who slugged a two-run homer in the first inning. Wood threw 72 pitches in the first three innings before settling down and making it through the next three. His ERA now sits at 3.67.
