Justin Turner probably doesn’t receive enough credit for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ success this season, but he should get all the praise for winning Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday night.
Turner hit a walk-off, three-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Dodgers a 4-1 victory over the defending champion Chicago Cubs and a 2-0 series lead.
The Dodgers third baseman hit the game-winning blast off Cubs pitcher John Lackey on a 1-0 count with two outs.
Turner went 2-for-4 with four RBI, a run scored and a walk in Game 2. He batted .322 and hit 21 home runs with 71 RBI during the regular season.
Turner’s heroics also helped him join elite company in Dodgers history.
