Game 23, 2017

Dodgers at Giants, 12:45PM PT, TV: SPNLA, NBCS-BA

After a 5-2, 3.39 ERA season last season in 77 MLB innings lefthanded youngster Julio Urias makes his first appearance of the year for the Dodgers. He’s pitched 14 innings at AAA Oklahoma City this year with no decisions and a 1.93 ERA.

Urias will face YALHP Matt Moore of the Giants. Moore is 1-3 with a 5.87 ERA this year but 5-3 with a 3.38 ERA in eight starts at AT&T Park for his career. In his last start against the Dodgers on Aug. 25 of 2016 he no-hit them for 8 2/3 innings until Corey Seager broke it up. That was the same day news of the A.J. Ellis trade broke.

Lineup when available.

  1. They were given gifts, but they took advantage of them. That is a nice change.

  2. Through the first 36 innings of this series, the Dodger bats reminded me of the movie Groundhog Day. The top of the 10th today reminded me of the final scenes.

  3. I want to count my chickens now, given that they could fly the coop. A split in SF is normally a good thing for us.

  4. Hold the presses — Dodgers taking advantage of gifts!
    It seems like forever since they scored in two different innings within the same game!

  5. If relay had been low to the infield Grandal would have been out at 2nd base when Utley got held, Monday says. Yasmani rounded the bag and couldn’t have gotten back without the high throw.

  6. What an incredible rally!
    But anyway — if they can get a run — it still counts!

  7. Remember when this series was considered part of a stretch where the Dodgers could/should fatten up on “weaker teams”?

  8. (From the Department of the Obvious:)
    If the Dodger bats don’t do anything, this is just prolonging the inevitable . . . and depleting the bullpen.

  9. Well gotta go pick up my son from Ultimate practice. Hopefully the Dodgers find a way to win this one!

  10. We can still win it for Fields – but it won’t be the same as when he had only thrown 2 pitches.

  11. Everything inside off the plate and then called strike outside. Welcome to the Bigs, Cody.

  12. Wheels coming off in Colorado for the Rockies. 10 run inning by Washington makes it 14-2.

  13. Does Urias have an amazing pickoff move or is it just not recognized as a balk?

    • Bite your tongue! (Has undergone a lot of review by the opposition, as you can well imagine).

      • It was a legit question, as I don’t have eyes on it – and wouldn’t likely know even if I did. I just heard some impartial sports broadcasters mention it.

  14. Dodgers with youngest pitcher and youngest position player in the MLB on the field.

  15. Remember when Seager was struggling defensively (admittedly mostly throws to 1st)?
    It appears the rust from missing a bunch of ST is over.

    • I think he is pretty much holding the team together single handedly at the moment

  16. Let’s go Urias. Time to stay – and shine brilliantly – in the Majors.
