SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Bryant’s Travis Wood handcuffed the Syracuse Chiefs (Washington Nationals) on just three hits over seven innings as the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati Reds) picked up an International League win, 9-1, on Thursday night.
In the write-up for MiLB.com, Neil Rohrer wrote:[more]
“As impressive as the offense was in this game, the real story was Wood. Wood (4-4, 3.77) kept Chief hitters off balance all night and was never threatened in his seven innings of work. In fact, he didn't allow a base runner past second base. Wood finished his night allowing only three hits, no runs, one walk and eight strikeouts. Since recording a loss on May 13th at Buffalo and seeing his era rise to a season high 5.10, Wood has gone 3-0 in his last five starts and lowered his era to 3.77.”
The lone Syracuse run scored in the eighth. By then, Louisville had its nine runs including seven in a game-breaking sixth.
