After a hot Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Dodgers walloped the Minnesota Twins 10-to-3 on an 80˚ evening at Dodger Stadium.

For seven innings, Julio Urías allowed only one run. Over his last three starts, including Tuesday, he has struck out twenty-eight and walked no one. Tuesday evening, Urías had an outstanding fastball and a good changeup. For his last four starts, Urías has toiled with his slurve, but tonight it was working, helping Urías to keep the Twins off balance.

While Phil Bickford allowed a two-run homer to Byron Buxton in the eighth, Caleb Ferguson struck out every batter he faced in the ninth inning.

The Dodgers used many doubles, including Cody Bellinger, Joey Gallo, and Max Muncy, to score ten runs. Justin Turner returned from the IL and doubled. Muncy blasted his twelfth home run.
