At least one Atlanta batter reached base in six of the first eight innings Monday night in Baltimore. If just one of them had scored, Braves starter Alex Wood probably would have been celebrating a victory.
Instead, he lamented a no-decision, particularly after his team went down to defeat in extra innings.
Wood yielded a mere three hits in pitching shutout ball for 7 1/3 innings. He walked two, fanned seven and retired 12 batters in a row at one point.
The left-hander, who managed his finest effort since June 28, has lowered his ERA to 3.54.
