Recap: Encouraging Signs With Julio Urias, Cody Bellinger & Max Muncy In Dodgers’ Loss To Athletics

The Los Angeles Dodgers made a switch to start Joe Kelly as an opener, and while the results left plenty to be expected, it was Blake Treinen on the hook in a 6-4 loss to the Oakland Athletics.

Kelly’s insistence on throwing only his breaking ball quickly backfired as the Athletics opened the game with back-to-back doubles to take a 1-0 lead. Mark Cahna’s sacrifice fly and Cody Bellinger’s throwing error to third base brought in two more runs before Kelly could work his way out of trouble.

Urias has struggled in the first inning of his starts throughout the season, and with roles on the postseason pitching staff not completely set, the Dodgers tried the young left-hander out of the bullpen.
