MRI set for Dodgers' Turner after leg injury

Share

The Dodgers had fallen into a tie for first place.

"Hopefully we'll continue to build him up to four, potentially five innings, and if the opportunity presents itself we'll get him here ..." "Any given night, any team can beat any team".

A year ago, the Marlins could do no wrong against the Dodgers.

Justin Turner was well on his way to scoring the Dodgers' sixth run when he blew a tire rounding third base. Turner tried to run home, but was thrown out at the plate.

Prior to his stint on the disabled list, Gonzalez had played 1,833 games without a trip to the DL, which was the most among active players.

Turner wasn't the only Dodger who got banged up Thursday.

Volquez and Ryu are good friends, even after Volquez hit Ryu with a pitch.

Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-5) took a grounder off the leg on a ball hit by Justin Bour in the sixth inning. From there, in order: J.T. Realmuto doubled, Christian Colon lined out to right, J.T. Riddle lined out to center. Hatcher and left-hander Luis Avilan retired the next five Marlins batters on swinging strikeouts. He is still looking for his first home run of 2017.

Bour's home run was noteworthy in that it was another against a left-handed pitcher. He should immediately resume everyday duties at first base.

Gonzalez (back) was activated from the disabled list Thursday.

Roberts and a team trainer accompanied Turner back to the dugout.

Roberts said Maeda will return to the rotation during the Dodgers' series against the St. Louis Cardinals - likely Wednesday or Thursday.

The Dodgers are at least somewhat equipped to withstand an extended absence by Turner.

Kenley Jansen entered with two on and two outs in the eighth and struck out all four of his batters for his eighth save. Volquez was with the Dodgers for part of the season in 2013.

A sacrifice fly by Utley and a bases-loaded walk to Taylor provided the final score.
