The Dodgers will be without Justin Turner for the rest of the postseason.

After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that it's a grade-2 strain of the left hamstring for Justin Turner.

Turner had been battling neck and hamstring injuries throughout the playoffs. He even came off the bench in Game 2 of the NLCS. Still, he came back to start Games 3 and 4, looking to gut through the injuries and help his team. The decision was taken out of his hands in the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 4 Wednesday night, however. 

Turner hit a grounder up the middle that eventually became a double play. Turner was hustling to first base an attempt to avoid being doubled up, but about halfway down the line he tweaked his left hamstring and hobbled the rest of the way in noticeable pain. He had to be helped off the field and down into the clubhouse by teammates and team personnel. 

Dodgers look to stay alive tonight in the NLCS vs. the Braves.
