Turner went 4-for-5 with a home run, five RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 12-1 win over Seattle. Turner now owns a 13-game hitting streak with eight multi-hit contests during that span, raising his season batting average to .305. The veteran third baseman has nine homers and 30 RBI through 223 at-bats this season after capping off Sunday's big win with a three-run blast in the ninth inning.
Turner went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Mariners. With his eighth-inning homer off Alex Colome, Turner extended his hitting streak to 12 games, and he's batting .404/.492/.731 in August. Turner also chipped in a rare stolen base, his second of the season and first since June 26. Now seemingly back to full health, Turner appears primed for a big final six weeks.
Turner went 3-for-4 with three doubles and a strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Giants. Turner notched three of the club's five hits on the day and scored the only run, coming around on a Manny Machado single in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old is working on an eight-game hitting streak -- six of which have been multi-hit efforts -- and is slashing a terrific .436/.511/.795 in 39 at-bats since the calendar flipped to August.
Turner is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale at Colorado, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Turner has a modest six-game hit streak (.417/.481/.583) but will get a day off Sunday. Manny Machado shifts to third base with Chris Taylor at shortstop for the Dodgers.
Turner is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros. The Dodgers are just giving Turner a pre-planned rest after the third baseman played three consecutive games upon returning from the 10-day disabled list Thursday. Turner is slated to return to the lineup for the Dodgers' next game Tuesday in Oakland, serving in his usual role in the field or as the club's designated hitter.
