The Los Angeles Dodgers will play on the road for one more game before returning home to Dodger Stadium for a six game home stand. The first series at home kicks off vs. the San Francisco Giants.

After the Dodgers fell to 2nd place in the NL West and dropping the first two games in the series the Dodgers needed a win. Julio Urias got the start on the mound on Sunday vs. the Cincinnati Reds and didn’t disappoint.

Urias day was over after 6 innings, but he managed to keep the Dodgers 4-0 lead. Urias threw 97 pitches and had 6 strikeouts on the day as Joe Blanton took over on the mound in the 7th.

Urias had glimpses of a seasoned MLB veteran as he struck out batters and even a veteran style pickoff move.

Urias wasn’t the only Dodger to have a strong game. Chase Utley got things going with a solo-home run in the 1st inning to put the Dodgers up 1-0. After a strong performance in Philadelphia, it seems Utley had to make sure he got a home run in Cincinnati.

Utley drove in the Dodgers first 2 runs of the game. In the 3rd inning, he hit a single to bring in Andrew Toles from 3rd. Corey Seager also got in on the action sending the Dodgers to the bottom of the 3rd with a 3-0 lead. Seager extends his hitting streak to 12 games.

As for Adrián González he extendeds his hitting streak to 14 games. He put the Dodgers up 4-0 scoring from 3rd on a sac fly by Joc Pederson.

Justin Turner and González also made a spectacular defensive play in the game.

Going into the 9th the Dodgers had a strong 4-0 lead. Closer Kenley Jansen headed to the mound to close out the game.

Jansen closes it out and the Dodgers win! They will close out the series vs. the Reds on Monday with Scott Kazmir expected to get the start in the series finale. The Dodgers will then travel to Los Angeles to face the San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs.
