Turner has turned it on recently

Justin Turner leads the majors with 14 RBIs since the All-Star break, two coming in the Dodgers' 7-2 win over the Cardinals on Saturday. Elias Sports Bureau reports that only two other Dodgers have driven in that many in the first eight games following the break: Gil Hodges (1953) and Dusty Baker (1983).

Corey Seager's streak of 7 consecutive hits, that ended in his 5th AB on Friday, was tied for second longest ever by an MLB rookie. Oddibe McDowell went 8 consecutive for TEX in 1985.

Dodgers positives despite the marathon loss in STL: Howie Kendrick hitting .404 on a 14-game hit streak; Corey Seager had 4 straight hits in his return from a stomach bug; Justin Turner has 3 HRs in his last 2 games, and 7 in his last 12; Grant Dayton had 2 scoreless IP in his big league debut; Adam Liberatore's scoreless streak now at 28 straight games; Bud Norris will still start at home Tuesday.

Dodgers concerns on top of the 4-3 loss at St. Louis in 16 innings last night: Closer Kenley Jansen now has five blown saves (2 in last 3 outings); the offense had just 1 hit over the final 7 innings; starter Bud Norris had to absorb 1.1 IP, taking the loss; failure to move within 3 games of NL West-leading Giants.
