MIAMI – Justin Turner homered and singled to increase his batting average to .374, and the Los Angeles Dodgers extended their winning streak to nine games Sunday by beating the Miami Marlins 3-2.

   Five Los Angeles pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts with no walks. Kenley Jansen got the final four outs for his 23rd save in as many chances.

   The Dodgers (64-29) climbed 35 games above .500 for the first time since 1977 by completing their 11th sweep of the year, most in the majors. They've won 29 of their past 33 games and have the best record in the big leagues.

   They also have the franchise's best record through 93 games since 1955.

 

Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made the blooper reels in the 4th inning.  Stanton tried to rob a ball hit to right, but his glove went over the fence.
