Julio Urias (0-1, 9.39) vs. Eddie Butler (2-3, 5.65).
Yes, I've made this reference before. But this game, Urias' third appearance in the major leagues, has all the seeds of being Urias' first winnable start. It's Urias' first home start. We're facing the Rockies, five games below .500. Eddie Butler has indeed moved ponderously, with a 6-14 / 5.93 career line over the course of three seasons with Colorado (including last year's 3-10 / 5.90 effort). And Justin Turner is 8-for-11 lifetime against Butler.
So all you have to do is disregard the fact we were one-hit last night with what could be the same lineup of bats, and hey, this one is a done deal. No Butler doing it tonight; just like in hoops this year, right? And also, disregard Butler's first-round game vs. Texas Tech.
