LAD Game Score leaderboard for AT&T

I think I’ll make this a regular thing. Before each series, I’ll post the top Game scores and Strikeouts for that park so we can see if anyone can crack them in the upcoming series.

AT&T:

This is probably the norm for just about every park that Clayton has pitched in for the past nine years. Might as well call it the Clayton Kershaw leaderboard.  His 97 game score would be the highest against any Giant team on the road by a Dodger.

Candlestick:

That is pretty much a who’s who of LAD pitchers pre 2000.  In case you are keeping score, I have done two game score leaderboards and Hideo Nomo has the highest score in both Coors and Candlestick.

Polo Grounds pre 1958:

Yeah, I have zero idea who Watty Clark is but I’m digging the name Watty.  Rex Barney deserves his own column.

If my eyesight is correct, the Dodgers won every game but one that a pitcher had a game score higher than 80 against the Giants on the road.  Damn that Joe Hatten
