Astros reflect on Wood's 20-K game
Wood's fifth career start put him on the Major League map and flummoxed a Houston lineup that consisted of multiple All-Stars and two future Hall of Famers, all of whom later lifted the Astros to a club-record 102 wins while leading the NL with 874 runs scored. Wood credits his start against the Astros on May 6, 1998, in playing a large role in shaping him through his Major League journey, and it was also a springboard to him winning the 1998 NL Rookie of the Year Award, barely edging out Todd Helton.

May 6, 1998: 20 things you might not remember about Kerry Wood’s...
I love stories about cool baseball anniversaries, but more than that, I like learning — or relearning — things about the event that aren’t necessarily the main point, the stuff most people have long forgotten. He returned to form from 2001 through 2003 — even making an All-Star team — but ultimately health issues limited his effectiveness and he left the Cubs' rotation for good after the 2006 season.

The 20 most memorable moments in Turner Field history, ranked
The throw home clearly beat him, but umpire Jerry Meals called Lugo safe, claiming the tag had missed him, ending the pre-replay-era game and earning himself the kind of scorn Pirates fans had previously held only for Francisco Cabrera. A year after hitting into a double play to complete Atlanta's excruciating September collapse in 2011, Freddie Freeman produced the opposite result when his walk-off homer against the Marlins clinched a wild-card spot for the Braves in 2012.
