Highest Total Bases by a LAD in St. Louis – 3-Dog takes the honors
Willie Davis once again sits on top of the total base leaderboard for a game with eleven total bases. This time it is against the Cardinals in Saint Louis. Willie hit a triple and two home runs to generate eleven total bases.
How about Rod Barajas with his ten total bases in 2011? I thought he was only good for rocking Dee Gordon? I’m going to guess that is the greatest game of Rod Barajas’s career.
Was anyone alive for the Norm Larker game? I’m going to guess that is the greatest game of Norm Larker’s.

Going the other way, the best game against the Dodgers for the Cardinals in Saint Louis. HOF Lou Brock and Hall of the very Good Ken Boyer both check in with ten total bases. It has been fifty years since any Cardinal has had at least ten total bases against the Dodgers in Saint Louis. Ken Boyer ended his illustrious career with the Dodgers in 1969, playing for them in 1968 and 1969. Boyer was one of the NL great 3rd baseman during the late 50’s and 60’s. Boyer died at a very young age of 51.

The answer for Rod Barajas was kind of. He had one other game of ten total bases, but I’ll go with his game as a LAD as his best game ever.
The answer for Norm Larker is yes. That was his greatest game.
