Urias Set To Make Season Debut Against The Giants

Management decided to throttle back all-star prospect Julio Urias’ innings entering the season and the youngster will be making his first start of the year Thursday. The 20-year old posted a 3.39 ERA in 18 games last season, 15 of which were starts. Urias will be facing a San Francisco Giants squad that managed just two extra-base hits in 25 plate appearances against him in 2016.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 3-7 SU and 2-8 against the runline in their last 10 games.
  • The Dodgers are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road against the Giants.
  • The Giants are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games after a win.

The Giants will counter with a struggling Matt Moore. The lefty has surrendered 19 hits, 11 runs and four home runs in his past two starts, which only lasted a combined 9.2 innings. However, in Moore’s last start against the Giants last season the seven-year veteran went 8.0 innings while allowing just one run.

Of course, Moore and the rest of the Giants’ staff will need to slow down Justin Turner. The third baseman is on a 12-game hitting streak that has seen him hit .340, which includes going 6-for-13 with two runs in this series. San Fran has been struggling at the plate during this series batting just .229.
