Relievers Chris Hatcher, Luis Avilan and Josh Fields combined for 2 1/3 hitless innings before Kenley Jansen struck out the final four batters for his eighth save.

LOS ANGELES The last time the Miami Marlins were here, it was weird.

An RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez, who returned from the disabled list earlier in the day, scored Turner in the third inning. Cody Bellinger followed by driving home Utley on a fielder's choice for a 1-0 lead. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 15 of their last 18 games when scoring more than three runs.

Yasiel Puig went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The home run was his eighth of the season and it is well within play that Puig could top the career-best 19 home runs he socked as a rookie in 2013. May. He helped his own cause in the third with a double to right and scored from second on Chase Utley's single. Yelich smacked a solo shot, his sixth, in the third to slice the margin to two runs. Chris Taylor came in to replace Turner, who was 2-for-3 with a walk before leaving the game.

Gonzalez was activated off the 10-day disabled list before the game and Scott Van Slyke was sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room on the roster. He missed the entire 2015 season and made just one start in 2016 after shoulder and elbow surgeries.
