Wishing he could have the sixth inning back, Wood found himself wistful after the game.
“In a lot of ways, the baseball gods really weren’t with us, things just didn’t go our way,” said Wood. “But that is not an excuse. (The Mariners) played good, they took advantage of opportunities and, at the end of the day, when you score more runs than the other team, you win the game.”
“This has been a great season for us,” continued Wood. “We set out every year with the goal of playing in the Finals. This was a competitive series and we were right there, competing with the best pitcher in the league.”
