The coverage of Urias I refer to is below the video.
Julio Urias went for the Dodgers. He had an epic night at Oracle Park back in late May. Not only did he silence the lineup with 10 strikeouts allowing only three hits:
|Urias (W, 7-1)||6.0||3||2||2||0||10||1||89-60||3.03|
but he had two hits himself and a three RBI night on the way to an 11 – 5 Dodgers victory in SF. Then, just a week later, the Giants returned the favor and beat up on Urias in LA:
|Urias (L, 7-2)||5.0||11||7||6||2||5||1||82-59||3.61|
The Giants took that one 11 – 6. A month later, the Giants stole one from Urias, after he three-hit us again, going seven and striking out five:
but by beating Kenley Jansen late in the game, the Giants took away the win 4 – 2.
Urias took one more from us at Oracle, his 16th win, and he was dominant again:
|Urias (W, 16-3)||5.2||8||1||1||0||8||0||96-64||3.11|
Tonight the LAD lineup behind Urias looks like this
- Mookie Betts (R) RF
- Corey Seager (L) SS
- Trea Turner (R) 2B
- Justin Turner (R) 3B
- Will Smith (R) C
- Chris Taylor (R) CF
- Cody Bellinger (L) 1B
- AJ Pollock (R) LF
- Julio Urias (L) P
Kevin Gausman, who looked better in his last start than he has in many of the second half, will pitch for the Giants. The story here is that Kapler sent Webb against Buehler last night, leaving Gausman to face Urias tonight. Kapler’s lineup, with Tommy La Stella and LaMonte Wade, Jr. coming off-the-bench late night to face relievers, reflects facing the lefty:
- Darin Ruf (R) LF
- Kris Bryant (R) CF
- Austin Slater (R) RF
- Buster Posey (R) C
- Wilmer Flores (R) 1B
- Brandon Crawford (L) SS
- Evan Longoria (R) 3B
- Donovan Solano (R) 2B
- Kevin Gausman (L) P
Let’s Go Giants!
Let’s get the job done and win at home!
