Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner had been quiet this postseason. Then he came through in Game 2 with a go-ahead home run to give Los Angeles its first lead in the NLCS.

Turner walked to the plate with Chris Taylor on first base as the tying run in the eighth inning. Facing Jeremy Jeffress and a one-run deficit, Turner drilled a splitter over the wall in left field to put Los Angeles ahead for the first time in the series.

As soon as the ball left the bat and sailed over the fence, Twitter exploded in celebration as Turner delivered another memorable moment for the Dodgers in October.
