The ‘Blue Blooded Ace’ seemed to be well on his way to becoming the heir apparent to Clayton Kershaw, but his performance this year has been disappointing. Julio Urias has once again pitched poorly and his ERA has ballooned to 5.02.카지노
The Dodgers lost 5-8 against the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, on 20 April. The Dodgers had their two-game winning streak snapped and fell to 55-40 on the season.
A disappointing pitching performance from starter Urias led to the loss. Urias gave up eight runs on eight hits (one home run) in five innings with two walks and two strikeouts. The runs were all earned.
The Dodgers bats seemed to take some of the pressure off Urias with two runs in the first inning. With two outs in the top of the first, Will Smith doubled and David Peralta singled to give them a 2-0 lead.
But in the bottom of the inning, Urias gave up four runs. A walk to Anthony Santander and a single to Ryan Mountcastle put runners on first and second with one out, and Aaron Hicks singled up the middle. Jordan Westberg followed with a single to right. The game was tied at 2-2. With runners on first and third, he gave up a two-run double to Ramon Urias. It was a 2-4 deficit.
In the bottom of the third, he gave up a double to Jordan Westberg and a walk to Gunnar Henderson to put runners on second and third with two outs, then a double to Ramon Urias and a wild pitch. The deficit grew to 6-2.
The Dodgers got one run back in the top of the fourth on a James Outman solo shot to left-centre field. But in the bottom of the fourth, Jorge Mateo doubled, stole third and gave up a sacrifice fly to Austin Hays.
In the top of the fifth, Max Muncy hit a two-run homer to cut the lead to 5-7, but two batters later Gunnar Henderson gave up a solo shot. The Urias deficit grew to eight runs. The Dodgers could not get any closer.

Urias went 20-3 with a 2.96 ERA in 2021, fully established as an ace, and went 17-7 with a 2.16 ERA in 2022, finishing third in the National League Cy Young Award voting. He was well on his way to becoming Kershaw’s heir apparent. This year, however, he has struggled with a hamstring injury and has been far from consistent. Urias suffered his sixth loss of the season, and his season ERA ballooned to 5.02.
