Justin Turner closing in on LAD double record for April/March

With nine doubles already on the books, Justin Turner has a good shot to match the most doubles ever hit in the April/March time frame by a LAD.

Based on the table above, I guess the LAD simply didn’t many doubles in April/May until the 21st century.  Digging deeper I found eight LAD hit eight doubles before the 21st century.  Who knew that nine was the dividing line. The first LAD to hit ten doubles in a month was Cesar Izturis. Shawn Green hit nine doubles in 2000 and ten doubles in 2003.

Who can forget the blazing start to the 2008 season by Rafy Furcal?
