Wood allows one hit in seven innings, improves to 4-1 with Louisville

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Bryant's Travis Wood allowed just three baserunners in seven innings while picking up his fourth win in five decisions for the Class AAA Louisville Bats (Cincinnati Reds) in a 4-1 win over the Indianapolis Indians in International League play Saturday night.[more]

Wood allowed one hit but that one hit was a home run that came on the heels of the lone walk the lefty surrendered. But the only other baserunner Indianapolis managed came on a two-out error in the fifth and the Bats rallied from a 2-1 deficit to win it. Federico Baez worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth then closer Logan Ondrusek retired the side in order in the ninth to close out the win for Louisville.

Wood, who is now 13-4 overall this summer — he was 9-3 for the AA Carolina Mudcats before being promoted. His earned run average at Louisville dropped to 2.87. His seven strikeouts in the game was the most he's had in his time with the Bats.

Wood retired the first six batters he faced before issuing a walk to Robinzon Diaz to start the third. He fanned the next better and induced a slow roller to third for the second out before Jose Tabata smacked the home run to right producing the lone Indians hit against Wood and all of their runs. 

After that, the lefty retired the last 13 of 14 he faced with the error the only baserunner he allowed. He finished his stint on the mound with four consecutive strikeouts, fanning the side in the seventh.

A second-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds in the 2005 Major League Draft, Wood starred for the Bryant Hornets and Bryant Black Sox teams.
