In his second start since coming off the DL, Kelly threw a career-high seven innings. He recorded 15 of his 21 outs on the ground, a credit to a strong sinker. He also fixed some mechanical issues that he believed had been leading him to tip pitches.

It's been a struggle this season for Wood, who ranks third in the NL in walks. He is 0-4 in his last six starts. Pitching coach Chris Bosio would like to see Wood get back to basics and challenge hitters more. The problem is command, or lack of.
