Braves' Alex Wood gives up four runs, gets sixth win on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Braves left-hander Alex Wood was the beneficary of a nine-run explosion by his offense on the Fourth of July. Wood gave up four runs on 10 hits over six innings, but came away with the win in the 9-5 victory over the Phillies.

Wood (6-5, 3.34 ERA) walked two and struck out four. He gave up a three-run home run to Darin Ruf in the fifth inning, but the Braves already had nine runs on the board at that point.

"He had a lot of baserunners, but he battled," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, per MLB.com. "He bent a little bit, but he didn't give in and he kept us right there, and we were able to give him a little cushion and we end up winning the game."

This is the first time Wood has allowed more than three runs since he allowed four on June 12.

Braves' Alex Wood on win vs. Pirates: 'My best start of year'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood has spent several weeks making adjustments to his pitching mechanics in order to find the form that made him a successful starter in 2014. Wood admits he might have finally found that form after throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings during Sunday's 2-1 win against the Pirates.

"This is my best [start] of the year for sure, just in terms of my fastball command, being able to move it in and out," Wood said, per MLB.com. "Today is how I felt during that long stretch that I put together last year. Hopefully, it will carry over the rest of the year."

Wood tied a season-high with eight strikeouts, while allowing five hits and no walks.

"He was pretty much in control the whole game," Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. "He had all three of his pitches working and he was moving his fastball around. He was ahead in the count. That's what he can do. When he's right, he can dominate lineups. Today you saw a glimpse of what he can do.

"He threw a lot of fastballs in to a lot of their right-handed hitters that backed them up and made them respect both sides of the plate. He had a lot of strikeouts, especially looking at fastballs that were in on the plate because they were looking out over [the plate]."

Braves SP Alex Wood strikes out seven in no-decision Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Braves left-hander Alex Wood was solid in a no-decision in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Red Sox. Wood worked six innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits. He walked two and struck out seven, as he left with the game tied 2-2. The Braves pushed ahead the go-ahead runs in the seventh, after Wood had departed.

Wood had the lead until he served up a solo home run to Mike Napoli in the sixth inning to tie the game. 

This was a solid bounceback effort for Wood, who gave up seven earned runs over 11 1/3 innings in his previous two starts. He'll try to get back in the win column when he takes on the Nationals on Tuesday in the Nationa's Capital.
