The Los Angeles Dodgers top pitching prospect Julio Urias started his first game of the 2015 season for the Tulsa Drillers and didn’t disappoint.

The Mexican native threw five strong innings, allowing no runs on two hits, striking out four while walking just one batter.

Urias was signed by the Dodgers in 2012 at the age of 16 and in three seasons he has moved through the Dodgers system landing in Double-A for 2015 and starting on a very good note.

He didn’t earn the victory on Friday, but he continued to show why the Dodgers have him as their top pitching prospect.

As for the game, the Drillers and San Antonio Missions played to a scoreless tie until the top of the ninth when the Missions scored the only run in the game. Benji Gonzalez, who reached on a one out walk, scored the winning run after a fielding error by Drillers left fielder Jeremy Hazelbaker on a ball hit by Tulsa’s Hunter Renfroe.

Both teams are now 1-1 and will go at it again on Saturday night with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 pm.
