WASHINGTON — Three days, three games, three amazing displays of speed.
Thursday brought yet another feat of the feet for the 23-year-old speedster.
Leading off for the Nationals, Turner smacked a hard, but routine, grounder to shortstop in the bottom of the first inning. Somehow, Turner beat out the throw for a single.
Turner then advanced to second on a single by Michael A. Taylor, then the Nationals orchestrated a double steal, putting Turner on third.
Bryce Harper’s sacrifice fly then scored Turner for the Nationals’ first run.
