Travis Wood SP CHC 2 Days

Wood was on point Tuesday against the Reds, giving up no runs on two hits and a walk while striking out five batters in the Cubs' 3-0 victory.

With the dazzling showing, Wood was able to pick up his first victory in more than two months, snapping a six-game losing streak. By traditional metrics (8-11, 4.72 ERA, 1.48 WHIP), Wood hasn't been particularly great this season, but his 4.12 FIP and .314 BABIP suggests he could be in line for something of a bounce-back in 2015.

Wood gave up four runs and eight hits over six innings in Thursday's regularly scheduled game against San Francisco. He issued just one walk and struck out six.

Wood has been very inconsistent this season, and hasn't pitched more than six innings in any of his last 10 starts. He's actually increased his strikeout rate from the previous three seasons, although his current 3.95 BB/9IP would be a career worst. He'll square off against the Reds on the road in his next start.

Wood gave up three runs on four hits and four walks over 5.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Mets. He struck out five and allowed a homer to Eric Campbell that was the big blow in the game.

Two walks to David Wright and Lucas Duda came back to haunt Wood before Campbell's homer, with all three coming in to score. "Walks killed me," Wood said. "If you take out half the walks, it'd be a pretty solid game. That was the game. I had the two walks to start the fourth and the guy hit the ball out of the park. I gave up four hits, and one of them happened to be a long ball with two walks, and that was the game."

Wood worked six strong frames in Sunday's extra-inning win over the Rays, giving up just one unearned run, four hits and three walks while striking out five.

After mostly struggling from late-June through mid-July, Wood has picked things up a tick or two in recent weeks. Over his last four starts, the 27-year-old southpaw has managed a respectable 3.52 ERA and 9.0 K/9 across 23 innings. Wood is slated to be back atop the mound Friday versus the Mets.

Wood allowed three runs on seven hits, walking three and striking out two over six innings, but ended up taking the no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Brandon Barnes hit a two-run double in the second inning and Josh Rutledge got to Wood for an RBI single in the fifth, but that was the only damage against Wood on the night. The quality start was Wood's first since June 26, though he still hasn't picked up a win since June 15. The left-hander is 7-9 with a 5.08 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and a 110:58 K:BB over 133 innings this year. He'll go up against the Rays next week in his home park.

Travis Wood went home with a no-decision after allowing four runs in six frames, as the Cubs lost in 10 innings to the Rockies on Wednesday.

Wood struck out a season-high 11 -- by far eclipsing his previous high of seven dating back to the start of May -- but was otherwise quite hittable. The lefty yielded eight hits and a pair of walks in the effort. Wood's mediocre season continues, as he now has a 5.10 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and a 108/55 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Rockies again next week, but in the pitcher-unfriendly confines of Coors Field.

Travis Wood struggled in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday afternoon, surrendering five runs (two earned) on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The veteran southpaw punched out five while walking one. He struggled to keep the ball in the yard on a windy day at Wrigley Field, serving up a pair of solo home runs to Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday. On the plus side, he managed to help his own cause by blasting his third long ball of the season. He'll carry a disappointing 5.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Rockies

Travis Wood gave up seven runs -- five earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Arizona got to him for eight hits and four walks and will be looking for the sweep on Sunday afternoon. Wood has not been good in July and probably belongs on fantasy benches (or waiver wires) for a while. He will carry a 5.12 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into his next scheduled start at home versus the Cardinals.
