ATLANTA — Alex Wood’s homecoming was not one to remember.

On a sweltering 94-degree day, Wood earned an early shower while making his first start since 2019 in the area he calls home in the offseason, against the organization that drafted him. With six runs in the first two innings, the Braves quickly put the game out of reach, handing the Giants a 7-6 defeat to send them home from this seven-game trip with a losing record.
