Justin Turner now has a place in Los Angeles Dodgers history. Turner, a 32-year-old third baseman for the Dodgers, hit a walk-off three-run home run to defeated the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.
The huge hit in the bottom of the 9th inning came of John Lackey and broke a 1-1 tie between the two teams. It sent the Dodgers firmly ahead in the best-of-seven series, 2-0, as they try to stop the Cubs from returning to the World Series for the second-straight season.
Turner’s walk-off homer was the first Dodgers walk-off in the postseason since Kirk Gibson’s legendary hit in 1988. It sent the fans at Dodgers Stadium into a frenzy and into chants of, “Justin, Justin, Justin” as he was being interviewed by the TBS broadcast.
