Tuesday night, Alex Wood (9 – 9, 3.05 ERA) takes the mound for the Atlanta Braves as they face Dillon Gee (4 - 6, 3.84 ERA) and the New York Mets. Wood makes his 19th start and 30th appearance as Gee makes his 17th start.
Alex Wood had a fine start his last time out but he didn’t factor into the decision. In 7 innings of work, Wood allowed 2 runs and 4 hits while walking a batter and striking out 4. Wood has had some decent trips to the hill this season and with some run support he might have had a better record. In his last 10 starts, Wood is 3 - 3. Last season, Wood posted a record of 3 – 3, with a 3.13 ERA in 11 starts and 20 relief appearances.
In 2013, Wood was 0 – 1 with a 4.05 ERA in 3 starts against the Mets. Wood pitched to a no-decision in his only start against the Mets earlier this season.
Dillon Gee took the loss in his last start after a rough outing. Gee surrendered 4 runs and 8 hits in 5.2 innings. He walked 2 and struck out 4. Gee has allowed 4 or more runs in 5 of his last 10 starts. He is 2 – 5 in that stretch and hasn’t had a victory since early July. Last season, Gee finished the year with a record of 12 – 11 with a 3.62 ERA in 32 starts.
In 2013, Gee was 1 - 2 with a 2.63 ERA in 4 starts against the Braves. Earlier this season, Gee beat the Braves after holding them to a run on 6 hits in 7 innings.
