Julio Urías feeds the dream of the first two-time championship for the Los Angeles Dodgers

Los angeles dodgers They seemed to be against the wall in the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves since, in the eighth inning, the difference was three runs and everything indicated that the monarchs of the East Division of the Old Circuit would be placed to a game of their first World Series since the 1999 season, but the “magic” came to Chavez Ravine in the bottom half and now they dream of something they have been denied since their founding: the title in consecutive years.

For this task and to show that the victory at home against the Braves was not the work of chance, Dave Roberts will give the responsibility to the only pitcher who reached 20 wins in the regular season: the Mexican Julio Urías.

So far in the playoffs in 2021, the left-hander from Sinaloa already has three appearances, only one of them as a starter, but despite his good work against the San Francisco Giants, the last memory he has and must soon erase from his mind is the game he let slip at Truist Field when Dave Roberts gave him the responsibility in the eighth inning and he couldn’t hang the ring, which ultimately led to the victory of the ninth home.

If the plan does not change at the last minute, as the Dodgers manager did at the time, then it will be Julio Urías The one responsible for the series to return at least to Atlanta and there they return to leave the Braves on the road, as they did in 2020 but in a neutral venue.

The ninth Californian, despite their vast history, have never been able to win the title of the Big Top in consecutive years and now, after ending a drought that went back to 1988, they will seek to be the first team of the Dodgers who gets the ring in years in a row.

The first championship, under the nickname of Brooklyn Dodgers, came in 1955 but the following year they fell to the New York Yankees. They wore the crown again until 1959 and in 1963 they repeated the dose.

Already in the 1965 campaign they were the most dominant team in the world, but a year later they were swept by the Baltimore Orioles to lose again the dream of the two-time championship.

In the 80’s they also boasted a couple of titles (1981 and 1988) but were far from even aspiring to consecutive titles. Subsequently, from 1989 to 2016 they forgot to even make it to the World Series and now, under Dave Roberts, they have three trips to the Fall Classic in the last four years and the only thing that is in their way that is the fourth ticket in the last five seasons is the Braves, with the difference that now they arrive as the current champions and with the dream of opening the trophy rack in consecutive campaigns, something that never have made.

The Dodgers know what it’s like to be against the wall and with the odds against it since just this Tuesday, at the top of the eighth roll, with two men on base, the Braves appeared with a 93.3 percent probability of staying with the third game, which would have left the Dodgers on the verge of elimination and now everything has changed and the Mexican Julio Urías will be in charge of continuing to dream of that golden page for Angelenos.
