Braves lefty Alex Wood rebounds in sinking Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves emerging starter Alex Wood appeared to be on the verge of blowing a rare 5-0 lead provided him Saturday in Miami. But he found his groove and coasted to his second victory.

Wood allowed an RBI groundout in the second and solo homer to Giancarlo Stanton leading off the third. But he yielded just three hits, including two that never left the infield, the rest of the way. He finished having surrendered one earned run on seven this with two walks and one strikeout over seven innings.

The performance by the left-hander was arguably his best this season and ended a stretch in which he gave up 11 runs on 23 hits in 16 innings pitched.

"I'm still working on a lot of things and trying to figure it out," Wood said, per MLB.com. "I'm piecing it together as we go, but as long as we get a 'W' and I throw up some zeroes, I'll take it any day."

Wood will try to take his momentum and run with it next Friday against Milwaukee.

Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood takes no-decision on Sunday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood surrendered three runs on eight hits and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings Sunday for a no-decision against the Nationals.

Wood has now allowed 11 runs in 15 2/3 innings (6.32 ERA) over his last three starts.

"In games like this you feel like you could have done a little more. You think about lots of things. Today is still a loss," Wood said.

Wood also went 3 for 3 with an RBI in the game.

"Woody was a bulldog on the mound and he was in line to get the win," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. '"We've got to mix and match out of the bullpen and we haven't been able to do it."

Wood's next start is set for Saturday in Miami.

Braves P Alex Wood on making adjustments: 'The time is now'
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

After the Braves' 5-2 loss to the Phillies on Monday, starter Alex Wood is definitely starting to feel some frustration. With the loss, Wood is now 1-2 with a 4.32 ERA. He had a breakout campaign in 2014, going 11-11 with a nifty 2.78 ERA in 35 games (24 starts) for the Braves.

"The time is now," Wood said, per MLB.com. "I've got to make an adjustment. It's a humbling game to say the least. It's one of those things where there's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to figure it out. It's just a matter of when. I think it will be sooner rather than later."

Wood feels his ineffectiveness is tied to not having his two best pitches working.

The sinker and changeup just haven't been there, and that's my bread and butter," Wood said. "It's one of those things where when I can get that to start clicking, with whatever adjustment we're going to make between now and Sunday, that's going to be the difference-maker. It's just frustrating. I know it's going to click. It's just a matter of having it happen. That's the frustrating part."

Wood is scheduled to take the mound on Sunday against the Nationals. He owns a 2.40 ERA in seven career starts against Washington.

Braves P Alex Wood allows three runs in loss
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Alex Wood gave up three earned runs in Monday evening's 5-2 loss to the Phillies. 

Wood surrendered nine hits and walked two batters. He did strike out four hitters during the 4 1/3 innings he pitched. All three of his runs allowed came in the first inning.

"It's tough to have that happen in the first inning," Wood said after the game, per MLB.com. "It takes a lot out of guys right out of the gate. It's hard to give up three in the first and expect guys to come back and score enough runs for us to win the ballgame."

Wood is now 1-2 for the year and has a 4.32 ERA.

"I'm not overly concerned, but that's not him," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I've seen him rattle off start after start after start getting you deep into ballgames. Today, it was 90 pitches in the fifth, and he hasn't been able to get into some kind of rhythm."

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Nationals.

Braves pitcher Alex Wood allows fives runs in losing effort
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Alex Wood allowed five runs on six hits in five innings of work in Atlanta's 13-4 loss to the Nationals Wednesday.

"Mechanically and from a stuff standpoint, I feel that is the best I've been all spring," Wood said, per MLB.com. "I was happy with the process, but I was pretty disappointed with the results."

Wood was roughed up in the fourth inning when Washington plated four runs on four hits, only one of which going for extra bases. He finished off the fifth inning with no issues, but already reached 100 pitches.

"The Woody we love to see and the competitiveness was there," manager Fredi Gonzalez said after the game, per MLB.com. "It was just a lot of pitches and a lot of deep counts."

Wood, who moves to 1-1 on the year, pushed his ERA to 4.03. He will look to bounce back Monday against the Phillies.
