Garvey has most TB against Cardinals at DS

Taking a look at the most total bases in one game against the Cardinals at home we find Steve Garvey at the top of the list. Quite a game by Garvey with three doubles and two home runs. Garvey’s game really stands out, that is a lot of total bases for one game.

Reggie Smith was a Cardinal before being a Dodger so he might have enjoyed that game a tad more than usual.

How about the other side? Most total bases by a Cardinal against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Even before doing this search I’m expecting Fernando Tatis to be somewhere on the list.
Dang, Tatis doesn’t even make the cut. The guy hits two grand slams in one inning but can’t find another total base. The Cardinals haven’t had many big games against the Dodgers at the Ravine. I had to go below double digit total bases just to find Larry Walker some company.
Nice to see Pedro Guerrero on this list.  Remember Juan Encarnacion as a Dodger? It was brief.
