MLB: Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Dodgers southpaw and former Georgia Bulldog Alex Wood is May’s NL Pitcher of the Month!

The former ‘Dawg had a terrific month of May with the Dodgers, going 5-0 with a 1.27 ERA, 41 strikeouts, just seven walks and only two extra-base hits allowed all month. His month of May included four outings where he threw at least eight strikeouts, racking up double digits twice with performances of 10 and 11 strikeouts against the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Congrats to Wood on the accomplishment!
