David Carpenter allows unearned run in loss vs. Pirates
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher David Carpenter took the loss Wednesday, giving up one unearned run on one hit in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Pirates.

Carpenter (4-3) surrendered a leadoff single but retired the next batter before an error put runners on second and third with only one out. A sacrifice fly by the next man up ended the game in walkoff fashion. Carpenter owns a 3.69 ERA and 57:11 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings.

Alex Wood surrenders two runs in no-decision Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Alex Wood wasn't a factor in the decision Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk in seven-plus innings and striking out four in his team's 3-2 loss to the Pirates.

Wood delivered seven scoreless innings before giving up a walk and a ground rule double to open the eighth and end his night. Both runners would come around to score to deny Wood a win. He owns a 3.05 ERA and 124:37 K:BB ratio in 130 innings after surrendering two earned runs or less in each of his last five starts. Wood is slated to face the Mets Tuesday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Simmons hopes to maintain the momentum he has gathered up lately. He has seven hits in his last three games and three runs scored in his last two. He has fanned just 42 times in 417 at-bats this season.
