Justin Turner homers twice, Matt Kemp adds 2-run shot for Dodgers in testy 4-2 win over Giants

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Justin Turner homered twice and Matt Kemp had a two-run shot in a testy first inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the second-place San Francisco Giants 4-2 to stretch their NL West lead to 4 1/2 games Tuesday night.

The Giants’ seventh loss in 10 games kept them from clinching a playoff berth after Milwaukee lost at Cincinnati .

The Dodgers can win the division title behind ace Clayton Kershaw with a victory in the series finale Wednesday night.

The game got off to a rocky start when both benches and bullpens emptied after left-hander Madison Bumgarner hit Dodgers star Yasiel Puig in the left foot with a pitch. No punches were thrown and order was soon restored.
