Wood / Urias / Maeda sweep away Pirates

The unlikely trio blew through the anemic Pirate offense to give the Dodgers a much-needed sweep as they head into Colorado for an early season bruhaha with the first place Rockies.

To accomplish the sweep the trio put up some personal accomplishments:

  • The first time Maeda pitched into the 9th inning
  • Heck, it was the first time Maeda pitching into the 8th inning
  • The first time Urias got at least 17 outs
  • 10th best game score of Alex Wood’s career (73)
  • 4th highest game score of Kenta Maeda’s career (70)
  • Highest game score of Julio Urias career (70)

Besides those personal accomplishments the starting pitching:

  • Gave up only three earned runs in 19 2/3 innings
  • Gave up only eight hits in 19 2/3 innings
  • Struck out 21 and walked only 3 in 19 2/3 innings
  • All three pitchers had a game score over 70
  • 2nd/3rd/4th highest games scores of the season that did not involve Clayton Kershaw

The sweep by these three left me wondering when was the last time the Dodgers swept a series that did not involve Clayton Kershaw while Kershaw was in the rotation.

    The Ninja is back!

    Maeda sure has fun playing baseball.
    I love this guy!

    Utley with hits again!

    Even though the Pirates look like the East Coast Padres
    A win is a win is a win!
