Justin Turner has been on fire this postseason for the Dodgers. In seven games, Turner has put up a slash line of .423/.545/.769, with three home runs and eleven runs batted in. However, this isn’t nothing new for the Dodgers’ All-Star third baseman.
In his career, Justin Turner has put up a slash line of .378/.495/.659 in the postseason. Just how good is that? Well, good enough to pass up legends like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in on-base percentage.

To celebrate, let’s take a look at Justin Turner’s best moments from the 2017 postseason so far, beginning with his amazing NLDS!
Next let’s move onto the home run that will be talked about by Dodger fans for years to come. In Game 2 of the NLCS, Justin Turner joined Kirk Gibson as the only Dodgers to hit a walk-off home run in the postseason!
Finally on Wednesday, though the Dodgers may have lost, Justin Turner managed to crush one out of Wrigley Field.
Congratulations, Justin Turner, on joining such legendary company. I think I speak for all Dodger fans when I say thank you, New York Mets. We wouldn’t have him without you!
