"It doesn't matter what you did the day before," Turner told reporters after the game. "You gotta show up the next day at 0-0. 

"And those guys [pitchers] are 60 feet away trying to get out[s]. Tonight two runs were enough."

The Yankees tallied a run in the fourth inning but could not muster more scoring against the Dodgers.

Los Angeles are now 86-45, while the Yankees sit at 84-47 for the season.
