Dodgers: Julio Urias Drives LA to 100th Win of The Season

100!!! The Dodgers are in the triple-digits in the win column as they earn their 100th win of the 2022 season. This is the 3rd time in 4 seasons that the Dodgers reach 100-plus wins (They were on pace to in 2020 but it wasn’t possible due to the shortened season). They are the first team to achieve this feat and only 5 other teams are able to reach 100 wins this season (highly unlikely though). 

The Ace

Cy Young candidate Julio Urias did his thing. El Culichi earned his 17th win of the season while going 6 innings strong, allowing 5 hits, 1 ER, and 8 K’s throwing 98 pitches in the process.

The national media needs to put some respect on Urias’ name and not just “put him in the discussion” but to actually consider a 1st place vote.

Overall, he’s had a great year, but looking at just the last 15 games, no one has been better. The 26-year-old is posting a 12-1 record, 2.04 ERA, 90 K’s, and a 0.89 WHIP in 88.1 innings pitched. The dude is shoving and is the ace for Los Angeles. 

Handing the Baton

This offense can damage you in so many ways. Their speeds on the bags, their power at the plate, and tonight it was giving the man behind them a chance to bring in the next run. 

Trayce Thompson started things off with a 2-run blast in the second inning to take their first lead of the game and after that, there was no looking back. In the 3rd inning, the singles were raining down, first, it was Freddie, then Muncy, then Justin Turner, and then Gallo to cap off a 4-run inning that gave LA a commanding 6-1 lead at the time. 

Turner had the hot bat tonight as he went 3-for-4 and drove in two. 

Up Next

The Dodgers will look to sweep the Giants in this three-game series tomorrow at Dodger Stadium North. This will be the last game against San Francisco in the 2022 season. Tomorrow’s matchup will be featured on ESPN for Sunday Night Baseball. First pitch is set at 4:08 pm PT.
