SEATTLE (AP) – Julio Urías threw seven dominant innings of one-hit ball, striking out a career-high 11 and leading the Losto a 1-0 win over the Seattle Mariners Tuesday. The matchup between early-season division leaders out West was an entertaining pitchers’ duel with Urías getting the better of Seattle‘s Marco Gonzales. Corey Seager drove in the only run with a in the third inning after AJ Pollock’s leadoff double. Those were the Dodgers‘ only .
Seattle‘s Chris Taylor was thrown out atinsurance run in the ninth inning. Taylor went on contact with Justin Turner and was quickly thrown out by third baseman Kyle Seager.
Urías (3-0) was outstanding, painting edges with a fastball in the mid-90s that kept Seattle’s hitters guessing. Seattle’s lone hit was Mitch Haniger’s slow infield single with two outs in the third inning.
Urías allowed two baserunners, and neither reached second base. He had 10 strikeouts through five innings, and seven of the nine batters in Seattle’s lineup struck out at least once against him. It appeared Urías was in line for one more inning at just 88 pitches – 68 for strikes – but manager Dave Roberts went to Victor González in the eighth. Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save to complete the one-hitter.
The Mariners needed a good start from Gonzales (1-2) after burning through their bullpen in. Seattle‘s ace started the season with two poor outings but seemed to rediscover a working formula against Baltimore. Gonzales allowed two hits and struck out six. He retired the final 13 batters he faced following Seager’s in the third inning.
