News: Wood turned in 7.1 dominant innings Sunday night versus the Nationals, surrendering just one run on five hits and three walks while racking up 12 strikeouts en route to his eighth victory of the season. Impact: In one of the best performances of his young career, Wood stepped up big for the Braves on Sunday night. The MLB sophomore amassed a career-high in strikeouts, as he finished off his brilliant 7.1 frames by punching out Nationals' first baseman Adam LaRoche for the fourth time in the contest. Wood has been a regular part of the Braves' rotation dating back to June 25th and has been outstanding over nine starts since stepping into the role on what is likely a permanent basis. During this stretch, the 23-year-old southpaw has posted an impressive 2.70 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 across 56.2 innings. Wood will look to stay the course as he gears up for a showdown with the A's on Friday.(RotoWire, )
