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.

After Corey Seager grounded out to advance the runners, Turner came to the dish and lined a two-strike offering into left field for the game-winner. Turner is hitting an absurd .362/.456/.556 with 11 homers and 41 RBI on the season.
