Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was removed from World Series Game 6 during the eighth inning in L.A.’s title-clinching victory on Tuesday night. After the game, it was announced that Turner had tested positive for COVID-19. It was MLB‘s first known positive test of the playoffs, and Turner was immediately removed from the game once the test result was known. Turner had a test from Monday come back inconclusive in the second inning, reports Jeff Passan of ESPN. Once the lab completed running a test from Tuesday, MLB was informed Turner tested positive and immediately told the Dodgers that he had to come out of the game.
