Julio Urias settled in after a disturbing start and the Bats had some big heats in the 4th, 5th and 5th for an easy victory.
After a Mookie Betts Double a strikeout in the 1st, the Dodgers had the first chance to score, but they were wasted due to bad luck after Corey Seager lined up a ball in the middle that hit the starter Luke Weaver. The chances were also wasted in the 2nd and 3rd, although the Dodgers were hitting the ball hard.
Sadly, the D-backs didn’t have such bad luck against Julio Urias, conceding a walk with two singles for a 1-0 lead in the 1st for the game’s first inning.
Fortunately, the Dodgers finally broke through in the 4th. Edwin Rios busted a huge dong for two points to put the Dodgers in the lead.Matt Beaty then followed a few batters later, hooking the attacker’s first pitch around the foul post and into the pen for a 3-1 lead.
The D-backs responded immediately in 4th against Urias with a double and a single to reduce the lead to 3-2.
It just seemed to make the Dodger Bats angry. A walk and a single to start the 5th led to two races after Justin Turner tripled at the back of the wall in the center right.
Pederson game then called with a single to attack another and push it to 6-2 before AJ Pollock remained scorching with a arguably left for an 8-2 lead and a five-run inning.
A two-exit rally in the 8th provided the last of the tracks for the Dodgers, as one walk and one setup a three-point taco oppo Chris Taylor to make it 11-2.
On the other side, Urias ended up settling down well. The Dodgers needed innings, and he provided six, giving up just two runs on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts.
Brustar Graterol took over in the 7th, cursing a 1-2-3 inning with one out on just nine shots. Dennis Santana followed by a perfect round which included one out after take out. then Jake McGee finished the game with a 1-2-3 inning and two strikeouts. Needless to say, after yesterday’s clusterfuck, the pen got back on track.
