Matt Kemp 10 Total Bases on 4/19/09 against Rockies at the Ravine is tops
A few weeks ago we looked at the greatest single LAD efforts against the Rockies at Coors. Today we will look at the greatest single LAD efforts against the Rockies while playing at Dodger Stadium.
I was a little surprised that Mike Piazza did not make this list. Matt Kemp sits on top with the best, and second best games using total bases as the criteria. At least nine total bases was used in the search.
As for the hitting, Rafael Furcal, Andre Ethier, and Casey Blake each had a double and a single. Manny had two singles, Hudson had three hits, and Russell Martin got on base four times. But the player of the game was Matt Kemp, who went 3-5 with a double and two home runs, one of which was a grand slam. Kemp had 5 RBI’s.
Matt Kemp hit a pair of home runs, including one near the top of the left field pavilion, to lead the Dodgers to a 3-0 win over the Rockies on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. The fourth straight win for the Dodgers pulled them to within two games of the Cardinals, who lost on Saturday to the Nationals. Kemp’s home run in the fourth inning, to left field, was estimated at 461 feet, which made it the longest hit by a Dodger this season. The previous long, per ESPN Home Run Tracker, was 454 feet, also hit by Kemp, on April 25 against Atlanta.
Paul LoDuca may not be on top of the total base leader-board but some would consider his six for six performance to be the best of the lot. For one thing is was six hits. For another thing they needed all six hits to beat the Rockies 11 -10 in a crazy game. His sixth hit put him on base in the 11th inning to score the winning run on a single by Shawn Green.
