On Tuesday the Dodgers dropped the first game of a 3-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, with a final score of 6-3. After what was looking to be a game of inches, a grand slam off the bat of Jake Lamb in the bottom of the 7th broke the game wide open. This loss doesn’t hurt the Dodgers’ lead much as it drops to 15 games.
Regardless of the loss, there were definitely a few gems that came out of Tuesday. Justin Turner reminded everybody why his name has been connected with the NL MVP award with 2 home runs!
This year Justin Turner has a slash line of .351/.443/.566, with 15 home runs and an OPS of 1.009. How ridiculous is that?
Oh yeah, that was his 3rd straight game with a home run. Do you think he can make it 4 straight games on Wednesday?
