Urias to start Game 4 for Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers took Game 1 of the NLDS against the Washington Nationals Friday night behind seven strikeouts from ace Clayton Kershaw. Could we see him again in Game 4 on short rest?

Not unless they are down 1-2, according to manager Dave Roberts. Game 2 is currently suspended so we don’t know what’s going to happen there, but if the Dodgers win one of the next two games, then it will be Julio Urias.

“Julio Urias will start Game 4, Dave Roberts says. Unless the Dodgers are down 1-2, he does not want to use Clayton Kershaw on short rest,” Andy McCullough tweets.

The 20-year old phenom was 5-2 with a 3.39 ERA this year for the Dodgers. It’s not like they are trotting out garbage just hoping to give Kershaw a break. So, barring a pair of losses in these next two games, Urias will be the guy on the mound for Game 4.
