MILWAUKEE- Justin Turner came through with a walk-off home run in game two of the National League Championship Series last year against the Chicago Cubs and he was the hero once again this year, as his two-run bomb in the bottom of the eighth lifted the Los Angeles Dodgers to a game two win over the Milwaukee Brewers, Saturday evening at Miller Park.
Overall the former Titan went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored on the night to propel the Dodgers to a big road win.

Turner's first knock came on a single to right field on a 2-2 count in the very first inning. It represented the first hit of the ballgame for Los Angeles. Turner was stranded at first in the frame.
Then came the heroic moment in the eighth inning. With the Dodgers trailing the Brewers 3-2 with just six outs to play with, Chris Taylor led off the frame with a walk to set the stage for Turner.
Turner then blasted a 2-0 pitch over the fence in dead center to put the Dodgers up by the winning score of 4-3. This all came after struggling in game one of the series with an 0-for-5 performance.
Dylan Floro also entered for the second straight game and recorded two outs without giving up a run. He entered in the sixth inning to get the final two outs of the frame.
Game three is set for Monday at 4:39 pm PT from Dodger Stadium. The game will be televised on FS1.
