Dodgers: Julio Urias Falters On His Bobblehead Night



After dropping game 1 of the series on Monday night, Tuesday seemed like a good opportunity for the Dodgers to shake it off. They had Julio Uruas on the bump on what was also his bobblehead day, and he has been remarkable for them this season. 

But things got off to a rough start quickly for Julio, giving up a 2-run shot to Michael Chavis in the 1st inning. Julio gave up another 2-run shot in the 2nd inning to Tucupita Marcano, putting the Dodgers at a 4-run deficit early. 

But they did show some signs of life, even with Trea Turner being the only guy with a hit through the first couple of innings. Turner blasted a 2-run shot in the 3rd inning to cut the lead in half. Julio kept it there for the remainder of his outing, tossing 6 total innings. 

But there were plenty of wasted opportunities as well for the Dodgers. They got runners on the corners with no outs in the 6th and managed to scratch across a single run. A Gavin Lux strikeout followed by a Kevin Pillar strikeout and passed ball led to their only run of the inning. That cut the lead down to one.

The Pirates would add a run in the 9th inning on a ball in the gap off of David Price. In the home half of that inning, the Dodgers went down very quickly. Kevin Pillar flew out and Mookie Betts did too. Freddie Freeman grounded out, and that was. They’ll look to avoid the sweep on Wednesday night in LA.

  1. When you consider the struggles with the offense the last 2 nights against Pittsburgh, its concerning. The Padres to date have played a much tougher schedule with the likes of St Louis & Milwaukee. The Dodgers have only played 6 games all year vs teams with at least a 500 record. It will be interesting to see how we play against the Mets. I fear that Pittsburgh will sweep us in todays game.
