For the Dodgers, it was a forgetful two-game series against the Angels. Their inner-city rivals came into Dodger Stadium and took both games of a quick two-game series. As a team, the Dodgers struggled at the plate, only scoring six runs in the two games, and not stringing together hits as a team.
The lone bright spot for the Dodgers offense though, was Justin Turner. In the two games, he reached base six times, walking three times as well as collecting three hits. One of those hits was a solo home run, his 99th career homer with the Dodgers.
Over the last 2 1⁄2 weeks, Turner has heated up at the plate. Since July 6, he’s hitting .315 with an OPS of 1.088. He has five homers, and has scored 17 runs during that stretch.
