Atlanta falls to Miami 7-0 in series finale

Scott Cunningham

Alex Wood led all of baseball in ERA in August with a minuscule 0.90 ERA.

With the offensively challenged Marlins in town, it seemed like a good bet that Wood would continue his success into September. So, of course, Wood allowed eight hits and seven runs in 2.1 innings of work during Sunday's 7-0 loss.

Placido Polanco got things going in the first inning for Miami, smacking a RBI single to bring home Christian Yelich, who had singled and stolen second. Jeff Mathis tacked on another run in the second inning with his fifth homer of the year to make it 2-0.

The third inning is when things fell apart for Wood and Atlanta. Miami pounded out five hits along two walks to score five runs and make it a 7-0 game. Wood finished with a line if 2.1 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K.

Veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia, who was recently called up from Triple-A Gwinett, threw 4.2 scoreless innings of relief while allowing just three hits and striking out two.
