The Mexican left-hander Julio Urias established himself as the top winner in the Major Leagues, and also remained undefeated for just over two and a half months, throwing three-hit ball and seven strikeouts in seven innings, in the victory of the Los Angeles Dodgers 3 -0 on the San Diego Padres on Friday night.
Urías, who lost a start last month by falling to the disabled list for 10 days, has reached eight consecutive victories since winning his first game in July and reasserted himself as the major league win leader by reaching 17, two. more than Adam Wainwright, his closest pursuer.
The Sinaloan, who got his second win against San Diego in just over two weeks, reached 81 days without a loss, after losing for the last time on June 21 to the same Padres. Since then he is 8-0 in 13 starts.
On the same Friday, but in San Luis, another unrelated Mexican Urías, Luis Urias, became the youngest Mexican to hit 20 home runs in one season, in the Milwaukee Brewers 10-3 thrashing of the St. Louis Cardinals.
More information shortly.
