Alex Wood is a very good pitcher. If his team could score runs for him, he might have 15 wins. Don’t forget he spent a month and a half in the bullpen. I imagine he will undergo 14 Tommy John surgeries over the next five years.
Wood was outstanding. He went eight, striking out 12 Fish and scattering five hits.
The Braves decided to give Wood only one run on Sunday, when El Oso Blanco crushed a 416 footer in the second. Thankfully, that is all we would need. I am not sure how you only score one run on 11 hits, but these Braves are capable of anything.
BJ Upton had two hits, so I am sure Fredi will move him back to the lead off spot.
