Turner injures right hamstring, Dodgers beat Marlins 7-2

The Marlins have now lost 18 of their last 22 games.

Don Mattingly was managing against the Dodgers for the first time, and his plucky club kept winning. The Dodgers had fallen into a tie for first place. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 15 of their last 18 games when scoring more than three runs.

"It seemed a certain DL, but we'll hold out hope", Roberts said, via MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.

A year ago, the Marlins could do no wrong against the Dodgers. Running with a limp, he was thrown out at home plate to end the seventh inning.

The team's trainer came on to the field to have a look at Turner, who was favoring his right leg and was eventually helped off the field.

Overall, the Dodgers bullpen threw 3 and 2/3 innings of no-hit relief with 10 strikeouts, just the third time in the last 100 years a pen has accomplished that feat.

Los Angeles starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-5) allowed two runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and a walk in 5 1/3 innings.

But when an 80-mph grounder off the bat of Justin Bour ricocheted off Ryu's leg in the sixth inning, his day was over. Hatcher and left-hander Luis Avilan retired the next five Marlins batters on swinging strikeouts.

Ryu was hit by a pitch on the right bicep in the fourth inning and then took a groundball off the left knee in the sixth inning. The Marlins went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz has scheduled a full committee hearing on the FBI's independence for May 24. This would be considered obstruction of justice which is an impeachable offense. "At worst, he has obstructed justice".

Utley's RBI single later in the second made it 4-1.

Turner had an MRI for the injury on Friday, after which the Dodgers announced the move.

The Dodgers are at least somewhat equipped to withstand an extended absence by Turner.

Adrian Gonzalez was back in the lineup for the Dodgers after being activated from the disabled list with herniated discs in his back. Chris Taylor could fill in as Turner's regular replacement, though Kiké Hernandez will serve that role Friday night.

Kenley Jansen entered with two on and two outs in the eighth and struck out all four of his batters for his eighth save.

Joc Pederson singled before Puig crushed a 94-mph fastball deep into the pavilion in left-center for his team-leading eighth homer.

Jansen seemingly did everything Thursday, even batting in the eighth and getting an infield single, the second hit of his major league career.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the first on singles by Chase Utley, Corey Seager and Turner.
