Dodgers southpaw Alex Wood was ripped badly when he pitched in Arizona last Friday, to the tune of eight runs — six earned — in just 1 2/3 innings.What a difference four days make.On Wednesday, Wood came through with an absolute masterpiece. He allowed just one hit over eight innings and the Dodgers rode a home run by A.J. Ellis and an RBI single by Corey Seager to a 2-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies before 45,906 at Dodger Stadium.Wood allowed just a single by Kyle Parker in the second inning. He struck out five and did not walk a batter on 78 pitches. Thirteen of his 24 outs were via the ground ball. When Wood (11-10) came into the dugout after a quick eighth, Mattingly went to shake his hand, the sign he was coming out. Wood at first refused to shake.“He looked at me kind of funny,” Mattingly said, laughing. “I just said, ‘That’s it, don’t even ask.’”Mattingly said that if the lead were 4-0, he might have left Wood in. Wood found the humor in fanning on the handshake.“I was a little surprised (to be coming out),” Wood said. “He came to shake my hand, I was pulling it back a little bit.”He understood the thinking.• Video: Dodgers manager Don Mattingly discusses pulling Alex Wood after 8 innings“Obviously, you always want to stay in, but I wasn’t going to fight too hard, especially after my last one,” he said. “If I wouldn’t have had that last one I probably would have put up more of a fight, but 2-0 ballgame, we’re trying to clinch our playoff berth and have some confidence going into this weekend against Pittsburgh.“Ninth inning, as everybody knows, is Kenley’s for the most part.”The Dodgers have Thursday off and host Pittsburgh beginning Friday.Wood liked his stuff.• Photos: Los Angeles Dodgers defeat the Colorado Rockies 2-0“Yeah, you know, baseball’s a funny game, right?” he said. “It was obviously my worst of the year the last time out. Didn’t really have all three (pitches), which doesn’t happen hardly ever.“Then come in tonight, thought we commanded the fastball to both sides of the plate and felt the changeup was real good. And, obviously, got a lot of early contact tonight.” Wood was asked how the four days between the two starts were.“Long,” he said.Ellis hit his sixth home run of the year off Rockies southpaw starter Jorge De La Rosa (9-7) in the second inning and Seager made it 2-0 with an RBI single in the sixth after a double by Austin Barnes.Ellis loved what he saw from Wood.“He was phenomenal tonight, as good as I’ve caught him,” Ellis said. “And I know for him personally coming off Arizona, this was a big start for him and a big start for us trying to win the series. Give him all the credit, he was outstanding tonight.”Seager said the 2-0 lead felt larger the way Wood was working.“Wood threw really well,” he said. “Eight innings, one hit, something like that. When you do that, one or two runs is like eight or nine runs.”The Dodgers did not start several regulars after Tuesday’s marathon and their lineup included four players who were recently in Triple-A. Third-string catcher Barnes, a former infielder, started at second base with Chase Utley starting at first for Adrian Gonzalez. The low pitch-count notwithstanding, Wood did not get the chance to finish because closer Kenley Jansen was brought in to save his 32nd game. Jansen gave up a two-out single to Charlie Blackmon before striking out Carlos Gonzalez to end the game.The game took 2 hours and eight minutes, a night after the teams played for 16 innings over 5 hours and 23 minutes.The first-place Dodgers (84-61) reduced their magic number to 10 and retained their lead of 7 1/2 games over the Giants in the NL West.Dodgers manager Don Mattingly talked about the ground balls Wood induced.“It seemed like he (Wood) was down all night,” Mattingly said. “He just seemed a little sharper with everything. You never know what goes on from game to game. It was good tonight. He got on a little roll early and just kept his pitch-count down.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
TRADE GRADES: Athanasiou | PageauChris Kreider, New York RangersOne of them was Kreider, considered the top player in the trade market. Reports indicated the New York Rangers would move the 28-year-old left winger if unable to re-sign him; however, hours before the deadline, the two sides agreed to a seven-year. $45.5-million extension.Joe Thornton, San Jose SharksThornton recently admitted being tempted by the idea of accepting a trade to a Stanley Cup contender with the Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning among those said to be interested in the 40-year-old star. NBC Sports’ Brian Witt reported Sharks general manager Doug Wilson confirmed Thornton was willing to explore trade options but a deal never transpired. On Tuesday, Thornton expressed his disappointment over not getting moved to a Cup contender but acknowledged the difficulty the Sharks faced finding a suitable return. TRADE DEADLINE: Tracker | Best, worst dealsMatt Dumba and Zach Parise, Minnesota WildDumba and fellow Jonas Brodin were seen as options for clubs seeking blueliners signed beyond this season. The Athletic’s Michael Russo reported GM Bill Guerin received calls on both players, but no one was interested in giving up a center for either guy.Guerin was also busy trying to pull off a complicated trade that would’ve sent winger Zach Parise to the New York Islanders. That deal fell through before the deadline, but the Pioneer Press’ Dane Mizutani notes the Wild GM isn’t ruling out revisiting those trade discussions in the off-season.MORE: Trade deadline winners, losers and the TBDTyson Barrie, Toronto Maple LeafsBarrie also surfaced as a trade candidate in the week leading up to the deadline.

Leafs GM Kyle Dubas isn’t ruling out re-signing Barrie, but it won’t be easy because of his club’s limited salary-cap space.MORE: Dubas doesn’t mince words at presserMike Hoffman, Florida PanthersThe Panthers search for a top-four defenseman saw Hoffman popping up in media trade chatter. That talk faded as the deadline approached and the focus shifted toward center Vincent Trocheck, who was shipped to the Carolina Hurricanes for forwards Erik Haula and Lucas Wallmark and two prospects. KOURNIANOS: Analyzing top players, prospects and picks that were movedJosh Anderson, Columbus Blue JacketsAnderson was the frequent subject of recent trade conjecture. The 25-year-old power forward will become a restricted free agent with arbitration rights this summer.The possibility of a difficult negotiation with the Jackets was the basis behind the growing trade rumors. However, he’s been sidelined for weeks with a shoulder injury that’s taken longer than expected to heal, sending his trade value plummeting. The 2020 NHL trade deadline saw 32 deals take place involving 55 players. Among the names sent packing were Jean-Gabriel Pageau joining the New York Islanders, Robin Lehner heading to the Vegas Golden Knights and Patrick Marleau becoming a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.They were among several players considered to be prime trade bait leading up to deadline day. However, a handful of notables who frequently surfaced in this season’s rumor mill stayed put when the 3 p.m. ET deadline rolled around on Monday.
“I was curious the way we would start the game and how it would go,” German international Gundogan told the club’s website.“I wouldn’t say that it was necessary to give us confidence, but the first weeks when the season starts, the important games start, you never really know what to expect. You don’t really know 100 percent on which level you are.“It was a great test for us, a last test before the Premier League season. At the end we feel ready right now and we can’t wait for the season to start.”Guardiola could even afford the luxury of leaving Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Raheem Sterling out of his matchday squad at Wembley after their World Cup exertions.However, Sergio Aguero showed no hangover from Argentina’s early exit in Russia by scoring twice to take his tally for the club to 201.“We feel very lucky to have Sergio in our team, a striker like him,” added Gundogan.“On top of that even Gabriel (Jesus) with his ability and his quality. We have two great strikers and feel very, very happy.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fired up: Ilkay Gundogan says Manchester City can’t wait to being their Premier League title defence © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 6 – Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the English champions settled back into their stride by beating Chelsea 2-0 to win the Community Shield in an ominous performance for the rest of the Premier League.Pep Guardiola’s men begin their title defence at Arsenal on Sunday, looking to back-up a record-breaking campaign that saw them amass 100 points to win the league by a 19-point margin from Manchester United.
