After having a poor start in his season debut, Julio Urías was seen on Saturday night as the pitcher who led the Major Leagues in games won last yearby not allowing a run in five innings and helping the Los Angeles Dodgers win their fifth straight game, 5-2 at Cincinnati.

There is a consensus among analysts regarding the need for Julio Urías to have another good season for the Dodgers to aspire to reach the World Series. The left-hander from Culiacán responded and barely received a hit against the Reds, struck out 5 batters and gave up one walk. He was pulled after 65 pitches (40 strikes). Unfortunately for him, the visitors’ starter, rookie Hunter Greene, had also not allowed a run and so the Mexican left without a decision.

A day earlier, Urías and the rest of the Dodgers had the opportunity to greet legendary actor Denzel Washington, who visited the team’s locker room during the day dedicated to Jackie Robinson.

The Dodgers, who won an emotional opening game in Los Angeles on Thursday and on Friday they triumphantly celebrated the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking baseball’s color barrier, exploded with four runs in the sixth inning. Austin Barnes singled off Greene and Trea Turner followed with a mile-long home run to left to open the score, 2-0.

Chris Taylor’s single off reliever Buck Farmer increased the lead to 4-0 driving in Freddie Freeman and Edwin Rios, who had gotten into scoring position on a wild pitch from the Reds’ No. 2 pitcher. Freeman made it 5-0 one inning later with his first RBI for the Dodgers.driving in Gavin Lux with a sacrifice fly.

The victory was credited to Evan Phillips, second pitcher for the Dodgers, and Daniel Hudson got the save by getting the final two outs after the Reds scored twice against Mitch White.
