The Dodgers Turn To Julio Urias To Bring Them One Step Closer To World Series

I saw another title for another story concerning Julio Urias’ start tonight in game 4 in the Dodgers against the Cubs.  The headline alluded to Urias age of twenty when it said He is underage to drink alcohol but he can start in the MLB playoffs.

I happen to like this kid very much and am happy to see him start tonight against the Cubs.  He will be the youngest player to start in the playoffs.

He has a record of 5-2 and ERA. of 3.39.  He has struck out 84 players.

The Dodgers Prevented The Cubs From Ever Seeing Home Plate In Game 3

The Dodgers moved two games closer to their quest, the World Series appearance after shut outing the Cubs. Their pitching played a big part in their victory.  Starting pitcher Rich Hill and his relievers kept the Cub batters from ever crossing home plate.

Hill  pitched for six innings and gave up only two hits.  He walked two batters while striking out six. This win gives him his first postseason win.

The combined pitching staff gave up only four hits the entire game. They walk two and struck out ten. Their combined effort gave the Dodgers a 6-0 victory over the Cubs.

I hope for a repeat performance in game four from starting pitcher Julio Urias and his relief.

Rich Hill Will Take the Mound Against The Cubs In Game Three of NLCS

The Dodgers will try to break the 1-1 tie in their best of seven series against the Chicago Cubs and couple that with a win tomorrow night they could possibly make this year’s World Series.

The left-handed Hill is 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA.  He has compiled 129 strikeouts.  Hill has been a nice compliment to all-star Clayton Kershaw since the loss of Zack Greinke to the Arizona Diamondbacks this spring.
