Urías to start 100th playoff game for Dodger Stadium

LOS ANGELES – Mexican pitcher Julio Urías will start the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night, in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, which will also be the 100th game of postseason at Dodger Stadium.

Atlanta won the first two games at Truist Park, but the Dodgers were successful in the first game of the series at home on Tuesday, scoring four runs in the eighth inning. While Urías will be making his third appearance – second outing – in the past six days, Atlanta announced that it will have a bullpen day.

In his first season as a member of the Dodgers regular rotation, Urías was 20-3 with a 2.96 ERA and struck out 195 batters in 185.2 innings. The left-hander was 2-0, 2.45 and struck out 12 in 11 innings against Atlanta in the regular season.

The Dodgers moved from Brooklyn, New York, to Los Angeles for the 1958 season, but they didn’t open Dodger Stadium until 1962.

The Dodgers are 57-38 in 95 playoff games at Dodger Stadium, which was the site of all four games played by the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics in the Division Series last year, when the coronavirus forced the Major Leagues. to modify the postseason schedule.

Hall of Famer outfielder Reggie Jackson is the player with the most home runs (6) in the postseason at Dodger Stadium. Justin Turner, Joc Pederson, George Springer and Steve Garvey hit five homers each.

Garvey (35), Justin Turner (34), Cuban Yasiel Puig (34), and Bill Russell (32) lead the hits lead, while Clayton Kershaw (5), Mexican Fernando Valenzuela (4) and Don Sutton ( 4) are the winners of the most matches in the legendary Los Angeles park.
