Cody Bellinger owns the Dodger / Mets Total Base leaderboard

[Update June 20th, 2017] Corey Seager with three home runs and a double now has 14 total bases obliterating the old total base record against the Mets at Dodger Stadium

Considering the Mets have been coming to Dodger Stadium since 1962, it is amazing that no LAD has been able to have a double-digit total base game against the Mets.

Cody Bellinger, however, had nine total bases last night and that was good enough to tie Gary Sheffield and Jim Lefebvre at top of the total base leaderboard against the Mets at Dodger Stadium.  All three hitters did it the same way. Two home runs, and one single. There was a thirty-four-year span between Lefebvre and Sheffield. Must have been all those great Met pitchers.

Lefebvre did it during his remarkable sophomore season in 1966.

On the flip side, the Mets have had some huge games against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Claudell Washington hit three home runs and a single for thirteen total bases. Dave Kingman hit three home runs for his twelve total bases. Even Lee Mazzilli was able to put up a double-digit total base game.  You will note that it has not been done in 37 years.

    CODY BELLINGER

    Has his name keep appearing on lists with some pretty good hitters!

    I love that CODY BELLINGER shows the demeanor of a mature adult
    way past many a twenty one year old

  2. That was quick. With five innings to go, Corey Seager has ten total bases against the Mets putting him on top of this leaderboard.
