It wasn’t the best night for Dodgers fans on Wednesday. Los Angeles fell behind early to the Rays and just couldn’t get their bats going at the right time. Ultimately they fell short and Tampa Bay tied up the World Series at 1 apiece.
After the game, Dave Roberts talked about having to pitch that game with no rested starting pitchers. Tony Gonsolin got the start, but couldn’t get through the 2nd inning before being pulled. For Roberts, he feels confident in the Dodgers rotation that he has moving forward in the World Series.

That statement also brought to light that the Dodgers do indeed plan on going with Julio Urías in Game 4 of the World Series. Roberts later confirmed that was the plan when asked about it. Urías last pitched in Game 7 of the NLCS when he earned the win in a 3-inning appearance.
For the Dodgers, they could not have picked a better guy to follow up Walker Buehler in the rotation for the World Series. Urías has been unbelievable in the postseason, pitching 16 total innings and allowing just 1 earned run. He has also struck out 16 batters and issued just 3 walks.
