The Dodgers ended their last regular season road trip with a 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks. However, the Giants also won so their deficit remained at two games with six games left in the season.
Julio Urias and four relievers combined to get the Dodgers 17th shutout of the year. Urias continued to set new personal highs with his 31st start and he has now reached 179⅓ innings pitched and 190 strikeouts.
In winning his 19th game, Urias matches Zack Greinke who won 19 games in 2015. He could get the opportunity to win his 20th game next weekend.
Justin Bruihl, Joe Kelly, Corey Knebel each pitched scoreless innings following Urias and then the Dodgers handed the ball to Kenley Jansen to pitch the 9th.
Jansen gave up a leadoff single to Josh Rojas and then he struck out both Pavin Smith and Josh Vanmeter. And then Ketel Marte grounded out to first to end the game.
For the second game in a row, the Dodger offense was provided by the home run. Corey Seager and Trea Turner hit back-to-back in the first inning to start the scoring. And then in the third inning, Seager hit his second home run to make it 3-0.
Trea Turner would follow that with a drive that went off the wall in centerfield but that would only be a long double.
That would end the scoring despite the Dodgers getting six walks. They would go 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
- Corey Seager and Trea Turner each hit their 100th career home run on Sunday, Seager joins teammates Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy who have also hit over 100 or more home runs in a Dodger uniform.
Trea Turner and Corey Seager each collected their 100th career home run today. First time a pair of teammates have done so in the same game since Sept. 27, 2005 (Jay Gibbons/Melvin Mora).
