Wood turns in solid outing in first start for Louisville

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Bryant's Travis Wood made what would have to termed a successful debut for the Class AAA Louisville Bats on Saturday night.

Wood pitched six shutout innings before giving up a solo homer in the seventh against the Syracuse Chiefs. 

Just called up from the Carolina Mudcats, Wood allowed three hits, walked four and struck out five in his 6 2/3 innings, leaving with his team leading 3-1. Syracuse, however, rallied for a 4-3 win against the Bats' bullpen so Wood received no decision.[more]

The lefty retired the first two batters in the seventh before Seth Bynum hit the home run. After issuing his fourth walk, Wood, who had thrown 100 pitches, gave way to reliever Zachary Stewart who got out of the inning. 

Syracuse scored a run in the bottom of the eight then won it with a two-run walk-off single in the home ninth. 

Among those in the starting lineup for Syracuse were Pete Orr, Elijah Dukes and Justin Maxwell, who have all seen time in the Major Leagues.
