Justin Turner (neck) hitting fifth for Dodgers in NLCS Game 3
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Justin Turner (neck) is in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS on Tuesday against right-hander Charlie Morton and the Atlanta Braves.
Turner was held out of the previous lineup due to a neck issue, though he did pinch-hit and reached on a hit-by-pitch. He is starting on third base and hitting fifth on Tuesday as the Dodgers try to work out of an 0-2 hole. Chris Taylor is shifting to left field in place of an idle A.J. Pollock.
