Box Score Bits: Wood unlucky again

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar hit his first home run of the season Sunday, a second-inning grand slam off Brian Matusz that keyed a 10-1 victory. Escobar, batting second, also singled twice and knocked in five runs. He's hitting .462 for the Blue Jays and certainly remains talented enough to help fantasy teams.
Cincinnati Reds rookie Travis Wood remains winless after Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies, but with a 2.03 ERA and 0.79 WHIP in four starts, it's not really his fault. Wood allowed only three hits in six innings, but a Chris Iannetta home run was enough to beat him. Wood is worth adding in most leagues.
