Chris Taylor trying to catch Davey Lopes

While Cody Bellinger is hitting home runs, Chris Taylor is running wild. In the month of June, Chris Taylor has seven stolen bases while being caught………..never.

Davey Lopes holds the record of ten stolen bases with zero caught stealing. That was expected because Davey rarely got caught stealing. That is why Maury Wills would never make a list like this.

What was shocking. Matt Kemp. What was more shocking. Franklin Stubbs. Are you kidding me?

Hey look, manager Dave Roberts made the cut off of six stolen bases without being caught.

This is a tough list to make because once you get caught, you gone.

I only left the run column on because of Eric Davis. He only scored two runs in the month. It was like he was A. J. Ellis.

  1. alas, Chris Taylor was caught stealing near the end of June thus removing himself from the list. He had climbed to 2nd place behind Lopes when he was caught.
