Wood did not factor in the decision against Colorado on Monday, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five. Wood gave up a run in the first inning but then kept the Rockies off the scoreboard in each of the following three frames. However, he was pulled in the fifth after giving up three straight one-out hits, and he was ultimately charged with two runs in the inning. This was the left-hander's shortest outing since his first start of the campaign, when he completed 4.1 frames against San Diego. Wood's next start will likely come at home against the Padres on Sunday.
Wood (3-2) earned the win during Tuesday's 9-2 victory over Colorado, allowing one unearned run on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings. Wood put multiple Rockies on base in the first, fourth, fifth and sixth innings but was able to limit the damage to an unearned run in the fourth. Manager Gabe Kapler let the 31-year-old toss a season-high 104 pitches -- 15 more than his next highest total -- though Wood was only able to tie his season high in innings. He'll take a 3.60 ERA into his next start.
Wood (2-2) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.1 innings. The southpaw cruised through three innings against the team for whom he has logged two stints, but Los Angeles broke through with two runs against him in the fourth. Mookie Betts then tagged Wood for a solo shot in the sixth, and the pitcher exited after facing just one additional batter. Wood did manage to rack up a season-high seven strikeouts in the outing, and he induced 13 swinging strikes overall. He'll carry a 4.38 ERA into his next start, which is on the schedule for Monday at home against Colorado.
Wood (2-1) took the loss during Friday's 14-4 defeat at the hands of the Nationals, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings. Wood never really got it going Friday as he surrendered runs in each of the game's first three innings and departed with the score at a competitive 5-3, but the bullpen imploded to keep him on the hook for the loss. This was the 31-year-old's first poor outing, as the five runs he permitted were more than he allowed in his first three starts combined. He'll look to get back on track during a projected start against St. Louis next week.
Wood (2-0) allowed two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Saturday against the Nationals. Wood began the game with four shutout innings, though he allowed three consecutive hits in the fifth frame -- including a solo home run -- to allow two runs score. Otherwise, he rarely allowed the ball to leave the infield, as he combined to record 12 of his 15 outs via either groundout or strikeout. Wood has been remarkably consistent to begin the season, allowing no more than a pair of earned runs in any of his three starts while also striking out at least five in each appearance. He currently maintains a 2.51 ERA and 1.19 WHIP across 14.1 frames.
