Alex Wood was on the mound today taking on Anibal Sanchez of the Braves. Wood has had run support issues this year and lately hasn’t been able to last long in game. If you think about not many Dodgers pitchers haven’t been able to get out of bed without getting injured or landing on the DL. The game started out fine as Max Muncy hit a solo shot in the bottom of the first and the Dodgers took a 1-0 lead.
Dave Roberts said Wood is not 100 percent synced up, in part because of hamstring and adductor discomfort.

Don’t forget Walker Buehler also has injured ribs so I throw my hands up. Rich Hill and Kenta Maeda are close to returning. In the top of the 2nd, Nick Markakis doubled. Former Dodger Charlie Culberson singled him in to tie the score. In the top of the third, Dansby Swanson reached on an infield single. Freddie Freeman singled. Tyler Flowers then doubled in two runs off Alex Wood and the score was 3-1.
In the top of the 5th, Dansby Swanson singled. Freddie Freeman singled again. Tyler Flowers singled in a run and ended Wood’s night and the score was 4-1 Atlanta. In the bottom of the 5th, Yasiel Puig hit a single. Joc Pederson then hit a double. Logan Forsythe got an RBI groundout and the score was 4-2. In the top of the 7th, Scott Alexander came in to pitch. Swanson doubled followed by a Freeman single. Sounds like a broken record.
#Dodgers call up RHP Daniel Corcino, return SHP Pat Venditte to AAA. Dennis Santana on 60-day DL.

Nick Markakis then singled in a run to make the score 5-2. In the bottom of the 7th, Yasiel Puig hit a double and would eventually score on a wild pitch and the score was 5-3 Braves. Yasiel Puig singled to lead off the 9th, but Yasmani Grandal hit into a double play to end that threat. The bullpen got taxed again. Ross Stripling will pitch tomorrow. As for during the week who knows.
