Dodgers Go Extra Innings Against the Pirates

Jonathan Manjarrez, Staff Writer

Yesterday in Chavez Ravine had fans of the Dodgers and Pirates staying longer than expected when the Dodgers needed extra innings to finish off the Pirates. The Dodgers needed extra innings and to expend every position player possible to beat the Pirates last night.

Starting pitcher, Julio Urias, who was a phenomena last year as the youngest starting pitcher that the Dodgers organization ever had. The 20 year old rapper, started off the game hot when he pitched 7 no hit innings. The game then busted open when Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates got off the first of the game against Urias in the top of the 7th. When trying to cover the play, Andrew Toles, was injured sliding for the ball in left field and was forced to leave the game. Max Moroff then came in the game as a pinch hitter for the Pirates and hit a single that led to a tie game.

Another pinch hitter for the Pirates, gave them a 3-2 lead with a homer in the 8th inning. The Dodgers then tied the game in the bottom of the 9th inning against Pirates’ closer, Tony Watson, with nine consecutive singles.

The game ended when pinch hitter, Austin Barnes, doubled home, pinch running pitcher, Ross Stripling in the bottom of the tenth. The Dodgers ended up winning the game, 4-3 after Barnes’ hit with two outs in the 10th inning.

The Dodgers face the Pirates again tonight t 7:10 pm at Chavez Ravine with Maeda on the mound.
