Justin Turner and the LAD Postseason 3-Run Dong
Justin Turner isn’t just hitting home runs this postseason, he is hitting three-run home runs and is now the first Dodger to ever hit a three-run home run in both the NLDS and NLCS.
The only other LAD with multiple three-run home runs in the postseason is Ron Cey who hit one in the 1978 and 1981 World Series.
The Dodgers went fourteen years between their first three-run postseason home run by John Roseboro in 1963 and Dusty Baker hitting the second one in 1977.
Twenty years between Mike Marshall in 1988 and Manny Ramirez in 2008

Of course, you also have the Cey, Baker and Loney grand slams.
Sure but this just about the three-run bomb. When Farmer hits his grand slam later this month he can join that memorable group.
