Justin Turner sat out the Dodgers' team workout on Sunday but is expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

The reason for his absence was classified as Turner getting "banged up" during the NLCS against the Cubs. In that series, Turner took home NLCS MVP honors, hitting .333 (6-for-18) with a pair of homers and seven RBI. He's in no danger of missing Tuesday's game.

The Cubs were very careful with Turner, but Wade Davis grooved a fastball to Turner in the eighth that was crushed to pull the Dodgers to within 3-2. For the series, he's now hitting .385/.556/.846. He'll look to stay hot and finish the Cubs off in Game 5 on Thursday.

Justin Turner played the role of hero on Sunday night, clubbing a walk-off three-run homer in the ninth inning, powering the Dodgers to a 4-1 victory over the Cubs and a commanding 2-0 lead in the NLCS.

Turner first got the Dodgers on the board in the fifth inning, with a two-out RBI single that plated Charlie Culberson to tie the game at 1-1. He then strode to the place with two men on and one out in the ninth inning, taking on veteran right-hander John Lackey with a chance to be a hero. After taking the first pitch for a ball, Turner crushed a missile to center field that carried the wall for the game-winning blast. He's been on fire this postseason, slashing .429/.500/.714 with a pair of homers and 10 RBI.

Turner hasn't played since Thursday due to a bruised right thumb. The Dodgers don't seem overly worried about the injury, but with the division locked up and homefield advantage a virtual certainty, they'll exercise caution with their star third baseman. Turner will take some batting practice indoors Monday to test out his thumb and said he hopes to play Tuesday. Logan Forsythe is at third base Monday and Austin Barnes is at second.

Turner took a pitch off his chest and right thumb in the top of the first inning and he was replaced at third base by Logan Forsythe in the bottom of the second.
