Dodgers: Justin Turner Passes Steve Garvey to Become All-Time Postseason Hits Leader

In the history of the Dodgers, none have done what JT just accomplished.



History was made on Thursday night in Game 3 of the NLDS between the Dodgers and Padres. When Justin Turner singled on a line drive to left in the 3rd inning, he didn’t just give Los Angeles the lead in the game. 

That single to give the team the lead was Turner’s 64th postseason hit in a Dodgers uniform. With that hit, he passed former MVP winner Steve Garvey on the team’s all-time hit list, moving up to the top spot.  In the history of this storied franchise, no player has ever done what JT just accomplished. 

Who could have guessed that when the Dodgers signed Justin Turner to a minor league contract way back in 2014 that it would result in this. This all coming after the New York Mets decided to cut him loose. New York, we can’t thank you enough for your contributions to our franchise. We love you JT.

  1. Love JT – he has surpassed my childhood hero Willie Davis as my all-time favorite Dodger – but, before we forget how dominant a playoff performer Garvey was, his numbers were accomplished in 4 fewer games.

    JT will be resigned and before he’s done will obliterate Dodger playoff records.

  2. I am pretty sure JT will be re-signed, as everyone knows of his value to this team. As I mentioned before JT could very well become the next Dsvid Freese for Dodgers. He has ability to fill in at 1st eventually if needed. I am also hoping that the DH remains in NL as we have all realized the benefits of this yearseeing an extra hitter in the lineup as opposed to a pitcher having to bat, thereby taking away good pitches to hit from the bottom half of the lineup.
