Travis Wood went home with a no-decision after allowing four runs in six frames, as the Cubs lost in 10 innings to the Rockies on Wednesday.

Wood struck out a season-high 11 -- by far eclipsing his previous high of seven dating back to the start of May -- but was otherwise quite hittable. The lefty yielded eight hits and a pair of walks in the effort. Wood's mediocre season continues, as he now has a 5.10 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and a 108/55 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Rockies again next week, but in the pitcher-unfriendly confines of Coors Field.

Trevor Plouffe went hitless in a third straight game Wednesday and is hitting .190 in 42 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Plouffe hasn't really been any good since April. The Twins aren't going to replace him during the season, but he'll be a candidate to be non-tendered this winter if he doesn't step it up.

Adam Ottavino worked a scoreless 10th inning to pick up his first save of the season as the Rockies defeated the Cubs on Wednesday.

Regular closer LaTroy Hawkins was unavailable after pitching two innings in Tuesday night's 16-inning affair. Ottavino got two quick outs before allowing Starlin Castro to reach on a single, but was able to get Luis Valbuena to line out to end the contest. With the Rockies likely to hang on to Hawkins, per reports, save opportunities will continue to be few and far between for Ottavino, who has a 3.80 ERA on the season.

Giants released LHP Dan Runzler.

The organization let Runzler go from the Triple-A Fresno team to pursue a career in Japan. The 29-year-old had a 3.30 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 46 1/3 innings in the minors this season.
Jul 30 - 11:40 PM

Derek Holland threw 33 pitches over two scoreless innings in his first rehab start with Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.

Holland didn't allow a hit over his two innings, walking two while striking out four. His next start will come Monday with Triple-A Round Rock. Holland will continue to build up his endurance and his pitch count with an eye on a late August return.

Luis Valbuena went 3-for-5 with a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth inning, but the Cubs fell in 10 innings to the Rockies on Wednesday.

Valbuena brought the Cubs to a 4-2 deficit with an RBI single in the sixth inning, then knotted it up at 4-4 with a two-run blast off of Rockies reliever Tommy Kahnle. Ultimately, the Cubs fell in 10 innings despite Valbuena's best efforts. The third baseman has had a good season, slashing .253/.336/.434 with eight home runs and 34 RBI.
Jul 30 - 11:35 PM

Brandon Barnes broke a 4-4 tie in the 10th inning with an RBI single, his only hit in five at-bats in Wednesday's win against the Cubs.

The Rockies had loaded the bases against lefty Wesley Wright and Barnes dropped a single into left field to put his club up 5-4. It was a rare sign of life from the outfielder, who has played sparingly while slashing .241/.291/.392 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 218 plate appearances.

The Giants are likely to release second baseman Dan Uggla in the coming days.

A report surfaced Wednesday that the team had already cut ways with the struggling infielder, but Uggla remains a member of the Giants for now. He likely won't be for too much longer, though, as sources have indicated to the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman that Uggla will be cut loose soon. Uggla is 0-for-11 with six strikeouts and three errors through four games with the club.
