The Dodgers were fortunate, but Julio Urias hasn’t pitched well lately, especially in his most recent start upon his return from the IL against the Royals of all teams. Although he might not earn the victory, Johan Oviedo is better than his statistics suggest. Pittsburgh is the club picked to win this game at 5-4.
