Dodgers News: Kenta Maeda/Justin Turner Lead L.A. Past Phillies

The Dodgers needed a strong start from Kenta Maeda more than anything on Friday night and he delivered just that.

Maeda gave the Dodgers his best start of the year, by far. He tossed seven innings, allowing just six baserunners while striking out eight.

His ERA lowered from 8.05 all the way down to 6.58, which is not great by any means, but any time you can lower your ERA by nearly a run and a half after one start, things are starting to look up.

Kenta Maeda showed some real excitement after his start, according to Andy McCullough of the LA Times.

The Dodgers needed help scoring runs as well and Justin Turner, the Dodgers’ most reliable hitter, stepped up yet again.

Turner finished the night 3-for-4 with two RBIs that came on this booming double.

Justin Turner is yet to hit his first home run of the season, yet he continues to mash the baseball as he is now sporting a .381 AVG.

Orel Hershiser mentioned on Sports Net LA’s broadcast that the wind at Dodger Stadium knocked down one, if not two of the balls that Turner hit last night that could have been home runs on any other night.

Cody Bellinger will be sent down
