Dodgers: Julio Urías on the Verge of Making Postseason History

The young southpaw tied an old rival in a pretty cool stat.



The MLB Wins leader showed everyone why he has been so successful this season. Although it wasn’t his deepest or most dominant start, he was able to limit  Major League Baseball’s best offense to only 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 5. He was also able to knock in the team’s first run this series with a 2-out single in the second.

Not only did his contribution on the mound help the Dodgers tie up the series with the Giants, it also helped Julio Urías tie a rival who was once a Giant himself. Urías tallied his 7th postseason win which so happens to tie Madison Bumgarner for the most wins by a pitcher age 25 or younger in the postseason. 

Julio has been in the league for quite a while now that it’s hard to believe he’s still so young. Many also forget just how talented he really is. Injuries and innings limits have prevented him from achieving his full potential, but this year has been a different story. Urías has been healthy all year and has shown just how great he can be. It can be argued that he’s one of the most underrated pitchers around. He’s barely entering his prime and he’s already his good; just imagine what he’ll accomplish in a couple seasons.

Urías has a chance to accomplish something great in the near future as well as he could surpass Bumgarner and hold the most postseason wins by a pitcher age 25 or younger. He could certainly get a chance to do so if the team advances to the NLCS and further. There’s also the possibility he could so if the series goes to a game 5 which would create another all hands on deck scenario, possibly thrusting Urías into the game with a chance to acquire win number 8.

Hopefully, he’ll have more than enough chances to make postseason history.

  1. Julio is just plain awesome!! Buehler is tired and Scherzer is a bit off right now but we can pull this off is we hit.

    • Agree. Thought we’d go with Julio on Friday then Butane. All three of our stud starters are about equal right now so rest is key. If it goes 5, it has to be Julio and the pen.

  2. I’ve said before that I love the way he stalks the mound after a strikeout…great attitude as he becomes more dominant and confident. We all know he can hit, similar to Valenzuela, the Giants took a chance and it backfired. He has a great approach at the plate, just put a good swing on the ball!

  3. I’m not concerned about game 5 at all. There won’t be one. Game 3 won’t even be fair fight. 3 time Cy Young winner vs a former Dodger pitcher? Are you kidding?? This is the battle equivalent of Nuclear Weapons vs BB guns and pea-shooters!

    • how do you win Game 4? Who’s gonna pitch? Buehler on 3 days rest? That’s the question, and don’t assume Game is automatic, the Dodgers could look past Game 3 thinking about Game 4. Let’s win Game 3 first, and then figure out how to close it out Tuesday!

      • Joe, looking ahead? Are you kidding? I guarantee you there is absolutely none of that going on. One game at a time has been the mantra by DR. They know what’s at stake. Dodgers are on a mission!

        I won’t worry about game 4. Dodgers and DR are well equipped to get the job done! I trust them to do just so.

  4. Why did I get two ads 10 seconds apart in the middle of the interview. Dave Robert’s couldn’t even finish a sentence without an ad popping up.
