What a Game by the Kid!

Julio Urias was super impressive last night, carrying a no-no into the 7th.  At 20 years old, he is mature and carries himself like a veteran, and his calm yet competitive drive is exactly what the Dodgers rotation has been missing (other than Kersh of course).  With all that said, Urias has a pitch that has long alluded Kershaw, and that's his change up.  He has been fine tuning it the last few years, and last night it was on full display.  His command leaves a bit to be desired, but nobody is perfect, especially a 20 year old MLB pitcher.  The game itself was a bunch of highs and lows.  I went from being happy to pissed off at Kike and the bullpen, and back to happy again when Bellinger tied it up.  In the bottom of the 10th they showed my least favorite Dodger (Hatcher) warming up in the bullpen, and I knew that if Hatcher came in they were in trouble.  Austin came up with a perfectly placed double to win it, with Stripling rounding the bases like Forrest Gump.  WOW, what a win, and what an exciting game!  It's a great time to be a Dodgers fan.  Here are my most recent Urias pick ups:
