Player of the Series: Justin Turner

It’s always tough to award a Player of the Series award when the Dodgers lose a series — which isn’t often.

One player who found a way to get a hit in more than half of his at-bats was Justin Turner. JT went 7-for-12 with two walks this weekend. He came in to score in each one of the three games as well.

Turner earned one RBI in the series when he hit a solo home run on Friday night.

If you missed the news, each time Turner gets a hit in the month of August, REX is donating money to the Justin Turner foundation. In this 3-game series alone, he raised $1,600.

Cody Bellinger gets an honorable mention for his two home runs this series. His home run on Sunday accounted for all the runs scored that day on the Dodgers side. Plus, he keeps reclaiming the MLB home run lead.
