One of the worst kept secrets in Major League history is confirmed: Julio Urías will be the opener of Dodgers for the 5th and final game against the Giants.
Since Kershaw’s injury at the beginning of these playoffs and with the losses of Dustin May and Trevor Bauer in the season, the possibility that this was the year of consolidation for the young man was seen coming. Julio Urías.
It’s not that he wasn’t a talent before, but the Mexican hadn’t been as regular as he should have been. And like the brave of Culiacán, Sinaloa took responsibility and signed his best season since his arrival in MLB, becoming the leader in victories with 20 and the only pitcher to reach double figures.
And in the playoffs?
Uriah revived the dodgers in the second, turning off the San Francisco offense and also firing up the offense with a miraculous hit that opened the door to the Angels’ first victory in the series.
And now, after two high intensity games, Dave Roberts and the Dodgers have confirmed Urías to open the fifth and final game in the bay.

And what can we expect from Julio Urías for the last one against the Giants?
Well, the Mexican will look for two brands:
- Maintain their unbeaten streak with 5-0 in the playoffs in the last two seasons
- Achieve his 8th lifetime victory with which he would surpass Bumgarner
And of course get the Dodgers into the championship series against the Braves.
You’ll make it? The coin is in the air.
