MLB.com

LOS ANGELES -- Justin Turner and Andre Ethier hit back-to-back doubles off Noah Syndergaard to begin the bottom of the fourth inning and get the Dodgers on the board vs. the Mets in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers would take the lead in the seventh and hold on to win, 5-2.

After Turner provided the spark with a ground-rule double that bounced over the left-field wall, Ethier followed with an RBI double to right field that cut the Mets' lead to 2-1. Ethier was retired attempting to advance to third base on a Carl Crawford comebacker, and Syndergaard escaped the inning without incurring any further damage.
