PITTSBURGH — Justin Turner hit three of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ eight doubles and finished with four hits and four RBIs in an 11-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Dodgers hadn’t hit eight doubles in a game since moving to Los Angeles from Brooklyn in 1958.
The franchise record is nine. Turner’s first double to deep center field capped a two-run first inning, and that was all the runs Tony Gonsolin and the Dodgers bullpen needed.
The first run scored on back-to-back doubles by Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner.
Gonsolin allowed one hit in five shutout innings and had five strikeouts while walking four.
