Turner went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's 5-3 win over the Rockies. Turner's three hits were all singles. The third baseman has six games with three or more hits this year, and three of them have come in his last 11 contests. In that span, he's batting .395 (15-for-38). His surge at the plate has lifted his season slash line to .238/.308/.390 with seven home runs, 43 RBI, 36 runs scored, 20 doubles and a stolen base through 305 plate appearances. His average hasn't been this high since April 18, but it looks like Turner may be working his way out of a prolonged run of mediocrity.
Turner went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Padres. Turner knocked a solo shot for the Dodgers' third homer in the first inning. He added a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. The third baseman has five multi-hit efforts in his last 11 games, going 13-for-37 (.351) in that span. It's a not-too-unfamiliar hot stretch for Turner, but his season slash line is at .229/.300/.385 after a cold first half of the campaign. He's added seven homers, 43 RBI, 35 runs scored, a stolen base and 20 doubles through 72 contests, though he's certainly trending in the right direction.
Turner went 3-for-3 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Thursday's 3-1 victory against San Diego. Padres starter Joe Musgrove mostly shut down Dodgers hitters in the contest, but he couldn't contain Turner, who notched his first multi-homer game of the season. All three of Los Angeles' runs came by way of Turner long balls, as the veteran went deep in the second inning and again in the seventh. He's still well below his career norms with a .227/.298/.375 slash line and just six homers through 70 contests on the campaign, but his power has come in spurts at times in the past, so he'll look to build on Thursday's performance.
Turner isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Rockies. Turner will get a day off after he went 3-for-17 with three RBI, a run, a stolen base, two walks and four strikeouts over the last five games. Max Muncy is serving as the designated hitter while Eddy Alvarez starts at third base.
Turner went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run in a 10-5 win against the Reds on Thursday. Los Angeles pummeled Cincinnati pitching for 16 hits in the contest, and Turner was one of four Dodgers to tally three base knocks. Two of his hits went for doubles, giving him four two-baggers over his past five games. Though he's hit only four homers this season, Turner is up to 20 doubles, putting him on pace to easily surpass his single-season career-high mark in the category.
