Dodgers World Series: Los Angeles Will Turn to Julio Urías in Game 4

The Dodgers will go with Julio after Walker Buehler.



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.

  1. Well in any event I hope Roberts and FO now realize that both Gonsolin and May were simply not up to task having been asked to come back during this pressure packed post season on just 2 days rest. Their inexperience was on display. But the Dodgers striking out 15 times at the dish tonight was the real killer in this game 2 IMHO.

  2. Dodgers got to hear out Nomar and JHair on hitting Snell! They were on it at pregame and the guys were not listening. Low let it go – — high let it fly! Snell was getting swing and miss on low breaking balls and getting by with high hangers for strikes! C’ mom guys, including hitting coaches wise up! LET’S GO!!!!!

  3. So glad Roberts didn’t burn Urias in Game 2. I was targeting him for Game 4 all along. I’m feeling good having Buehler, Urias, and Kershaw pitching Games 3, 4, and 5. Hopefully the Dodgers don’t need a starter for Game 6.

  4. Game 6 should have both May and Gonsolin on full rest, unlike in Game 2, and available to start.
