By on 9/28/2014 11:15:00 AM

The Atlanta Braves defeated the Philadelphia Phillies last night by the score of 4-2. The win improved the Braves to 78-83, second in the National League East. With a game to play, the Braves will finish with their worst record since they won 72 in 2008. They will play their final game without pitcher Alex Wood, who has been scratched from his start due to a forearm strain.

David O'Brien, who covers the Braves for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, tweeted the following on Wood's status.
James Russell, who has pitched the entire season in relief, is scheduled to make the start today in the season finale.  Russell is 0-2 with a 3.19 ERA in 65 games and has a career record of 10-16 with a 3.79 ERA in 337 games.

Wood, in his second Major League season, will finish the 2014 season with a record of 11-11 and an ERA of 2.70.  He allowed 151 hits and walked 45 in 171 2/3 innings, while striking out 170. He has a career record of 14-14 with a 2.89 ERA.
