Turner injures right hamstring, Dodgers beat Marlins 7-2

Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton top makes a catch on a ball hit by Los Angeles Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez while almost colliding with second baseman Dee Gordon during the eighth inning of a baseball game Sunday

Bour attempted to turn the Marlins' misfortunes in a positive direction during a 7-2 setback to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday in the opening game of a four-game series at Dodger Stadium.

In the second, Puig put the Dodgers back in front 3-1 with a two-run homer off Volquez with one out.

Los Angeles probably will be without third baseman Justin Turner, who left the Thursday contest after sustaining a right hamstring injury. He grabbed the back of his leg and hobbled off the field with a trainer and manager Dave Roberts.Turner was hitting.372 with a homer and 17 RBIs entering the game.Yasiel Puig, batting eighth, hit an 0-1 pitch from Edinson Volquez (0-6) into the left field seats to give the Dodgers a lead in the second inning.Kenley Jansen got four outs, all via strikeout, for his eighth save.

It wasn't a very fun night for the starting pitchers, though Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu was able to mute the Marlins enough over 51/3 innings to limit them to two runs and seven hits, including two homers, to improve to 2-5 with a 4.75 ERA.

After Ryu's three-up, three-down first inning, the Dodgers scored the first run in the bottom half of that inning.

"I think I could have stayed in the game, but it turned out to be the right decision", said Ryu. He struck out the side on nine pitches in the ninth for an "immaculate inning". Infielder Logan Forsythe is expected back from his 10-day disabled list stint as early as this weekend.

The overdrawn game of nuclear chicken between the USSR and the United States - now known as the Cold War - lasted about 45 years. Upon detonation, a first blast wave expelled an expanding fireball of plasma, a hot gas of electrically charged particles.

Ryu cracked a 106-mph double to right-center, and Utley's sharp RBI single to center gave the Dodgers a 4-1 lead.

Justin Bour and Christian Yelich provided the Marlins only two runs with a solo home a piece. The Marlins' infield was drawn in when Jansen hit a ground ball that ricocheted off the glove of Bour at first base for a single.

Volquez and Ryu are good friends, even after Volquez hit Ryu with a pitch.

Ryu said he could have kept on pitching after that sixth inning play. I said sorry and he sent me pictures (of the arm). Running with a limp, he was thrown out at home plate to end the seventh inning.

Marlins: LHP Justin Nicolino (0-0, 1.50 ERA) threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings in his season debut at Dodger Stadium past year. In corresponding moves, RHP Odrisamer Despaigne and RHP Brian Ellington were recalled from Triple-A New Orleans. Alex Wood gets the ball, and he is 4-0 with a 2.27 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. In his last start he recorded his fourth-straight win after six scoreless innings at Colorado.

Will the Dodgers hand the Marlins their third consecutive loss when the two teams open a new series at 10:10PM ET?
