Julio Urias stopped the bleeding this afternoon as he staved off a series loss in a 4-0 victory against the Reds, and kept the Dodgers afloat in the NL West race.
The “Terrible Teen” gave up six hits in six strong innings…he also struck out six…numbers of the beast, indeed!
The Giants and the Mets face off in about an hour. With Los Dogs and the hated ones tied for first at the moment, you can bet blue crew tubes will be tuned into that turmoil!
Tomorrow morning (yes, the game’s on at 9:35 AM in L.A.) the Dodgers will send Scott Kazmir to the hill for the final game in the series. Homer Bailey gets the start for the Reds. Los Dogs face Frisco in a three-game-series starting Tuesday, they’d like to get out of Cincy with a series split.
We had a betting pool recently here at rascalsoftheravine.com to see which staffer could correctly guess the number of drunks who have tried to scale the smokestacks in center field at the Great American Ballpark? Anyone care to guess? We’ll reveal the true number in tomorrow’s article and reward the reader whose guess is closest!
Will Homer’s Hellenistic heaters hasten Blue Crew crushers? Will Kazmir crucify rambunctious Red Leg rakers? Stay tuned! Until tomorrow, mirth-seekers!
