Career stats

Wada picked up his first big league win in his last start, holding the Rockies to one run over seven innings. He had better command of his pitches and was able to get out of a few jams. He also wasn't as nervous as his first start at Wrigley Field.

Jackson struggled with command in his last start, throwing 105 pitches over four innings. Maybe a new month will help. In six July starts, he was 0-3 with a 7.50 ERA. The problem has been the first inning, in which he has a 7.77 ERA.

Career stats

In his last two starts, Beckett didn't get out of the fourth inning, then didn't get out of the fifth inning. He's pitching with a left hip impingement that won't improve without surgery, and there's no time for that.

This will be the second time Wood faces the Rox in five days. He struck out a career-high 11 in his last outing at Wrigley Field but did not get a decision. as his pitch count again was too high to go deep. He is winless in his past eight starts.
