mlb notes

Alex Wood the southpaw pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers has taken over as the ace for the team in the absence of Clayton Kershaw.

Wood went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits, but did not factor into the decision in Los Angeles's 6-5 victory over the Pirates in 12 innings. Wood was on the DL for two weeks in June with inflammation of the sternoclavicular joint.

Roberts added that the team would decide what they will do with Wood once the team's medical staff is able to fully exam him and following any tests he may have done.

Wood is 14-1 with a 2.41 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings for Los Angeles this season, who have the best record in baseball (88-35) and have a 20.5 game lead of the Colorado Rockies in the NL West. On Monday, Kershaw threw a four-inning simulated game and is due to make his first rehab start on Saturday for Oklahoma City, the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate.

The Dodgers are now 88-35 and have run away with the NL West division.
