Keep going big Julio Urías with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The southpaw from Sinaloa got his 17th win of the season Major League Baseball to stay on top of the department and jump right into the race for the Premio Cy Young to the best pitcher of the National League.
His victim was divisional rivals San Diego Padres, which he whitewashed for a space of 7 innings (163.1 in campaign) with three hits allowed, one walk and 7 strikeouts (165 on season) on 94 pitches (64 of them strike). They relieved the Aztec, Blake Trains in the eighth and Kenley Jansen in the ninth.
His endorsement came from a two-run homer of Max Muncy on the third low front Joe Musgrove. For the fourth, The Angels gave the Mexican a mattress with another hairline on the receiver’s feet Will Smith, thanks to the sacrifice fly of Chris Taylor and that was all it took for him to Culiacan, Sinaloa to get a new win. His closest pursuer in this area is Adam Wainwright of San Luis with 15.
The impressive thing is that Julio has not lost since July 21, precisely in San Diego (the other two setbacks are before Giants and Angels). There are 13 starts without defeat and his effectiveness as a pitcher has gradually improved.
Julio Urías will make history in the Major Leagues
Something that Uriah can finally boast about is reducing his ERA less than 3.00. Currently, it stayed in 2.98, which gives him arguments to still be a candidate to win the award for the best pitcher on the circuit, where he has as direct rivals his teammates, the rights Walker Buehler and Max Scherzer, a Corbin Burnes of Milwaukee already possibly to Kevin Gausman of the San Francisco.
The door is open and with three weeks to play, plus the playoffs where the Dodgers they will surely be, Julio Urías has in his arm the possibility of continuing to make history for Mexican baseball in the Big leagues.
