If you missed it, or just want to watch it again, here’s Justin Turner‘s walk-off three-run home run that won Game 2 of the NLCS for the Dodgers on Sunday night.

Turner, 32, had another outstanding regular season, finishing with a .322/.415/.530 slash line along with 21 home runs, 71 RBI, and 72 runs scored in 543 plate appearances. He’s hit safely in all five postseason games thus far. Sunday’s blast marked his second in the playoffs this year.

Prior to Turner, the last Dodger to hit a walk-off homer in the postseason was Kirk Gibson in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. That one came against Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
