Turner ties Dodgers playoff RBI record with 2-run blast
Once upon a time, Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was non-tendered by the New York Mets. A few years later, he's breaking records. With Game 1 of the World Series tied at one against the Houston Astros, Turner crushed a two-run home run to put the Dodgers ahead.
The blast gave Turner his 13th and 14th RBIs of the 2017 playoffs, breaking the Dodgers franchise record for a single postseason. It also raised his career total to 26, tying Duke Snider for most ever for the Dodgers, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. Snider, however, required 149 plate appearances to drive in his 26 runs. Turner has done it in 109 over 27 games.
Turner's postseason shadow seems to grow more daunting by the day. He's hitting .367/.477/.656 through his playoff career. He'll have plenty of chances to add to his legend.
