VIDEO: Justin Turner Makes Catch Then Turns Double Play

Dan Haren was on the mound Friday night looking to rebound from a tough outing in his last start and get the Los Angeles Dodgers a win in the series opener against the New York Mets.

Haren got off to bad start as he surrendered a solo home run to Curtis Granderson to open the game. The right-hander retired the next three batters to end the first, then allowed a leadoff single in the second inning to Travis d’Arnaud.

Matt den Dekker followed d’Arnaud and worked a full count against Haren. den Dekker lifted a shallow fly ball into left field that Justin Turner went out to catch and threw a one-hopper to Adrian Gonzalez to turn a double play.

One night after hitting the go-ahead home run in the eighth inning, Turner finished 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored to accompany his heads-up defensive play in the Dodgers’ win.
