Thoughts on Dodgers’ Injuries and Motivation

The Dodgers waited all season for their captain to return, and it cannot be understated how much this lineup missed his presence. While they didn’t win the first two games of the series, they exploded for seven runs in Thursday’s game, five of the runs driven in by none other than Justin Turner.

Reinforcements Arrive, But Dodgers Are Still Stumbling


Allow me to start off by saying that Justin Turner has only been back for one game, and fans should be under no impression that the Dodgers will turn things around right away. However,  Turner’s first game back brought little to no hope to a team stuck in a losing streak.
