Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants staged a heart-pounding fifth game of the Division Series. The Dodgers achieved a 2-1 victory in the Oracle Park in a great strategic duel. After surprisingly Julio Urías I was not the opener of the engagement, the Mexican came out as a reliever and was in charge of overcoming a record of the great Fernando “El Toro” Valenzuela.
The manager Dave Roberts he planned his strategy in the lab, and luckily it worked out pretty well. A surprising change of sign left “El Culichi” without opening the meeting, but that did not take away prominence.
The Mexican lefty was called up in the third inning and did a great job on the Oracle Park mound. Urías was four innings in which he struck out five batters. This work allowed him to reach 49 postseason strikeouts and position himself as the Aztec pitcher with the most retired players in this way, in these instances of the Major Leagues.
Before this decisive encounter, Uriah was matched with Fernando “El Toro” Valenzuela with 44 strikeouts. Although his performance did not help him to claim the victory, it is still a night that will remain for MLB records.
The 25-year-old southpaw allowed three hits (one of them was Darin Ruf’s solo homer that took away his chance of a win), he did not walk and struck out five batters.
The Dodgers will play the Championship Series against the Braves in Atlanta. The first duel will be developed this Saturday October 16.
