Alex Wood finds home cooking to his taste

Right now Alex Wood has a career ERA at Dodger Stadium of 1.78 which would place him 6th on the all-time list for pitchers who have made at least 10 starts at Dodger Stadium.

The only Dodgers on this list are Sandy Koufax and Alex Wood. Heady company indeed. Anyone who watched J. R. Richard pitch against the Dodgers would not be surprised to see him on this list.  I never saw Curt Simmons pitch but I did see Jon Matlack and Dwight Gooden dominant the Dodgers when they pitched for the Mets.  Interesting that Jon Matlack made the cut but his more famous teammate Tom Seaver did not.  Or Jerry Koosman.  Jim O’Toole was also before my time but I do remember having a geat O’Toole baseball card. I’ll have to go find it.
