Can Dustin May break any of these LAD debut Game scores?

The Dodgers best pitching prospect will make his debut tonight at Dodger Stadium against the San Diego Padres, so I thought it might be a good idea to look at the best scores for a rookie debut, for a rookie debut at Dodger Stadium, for a rookie debut against the Padres,  for a rookie debut in August, for a rookie debut in August at Dodger Stadium. All these are based on the LAD franchise not the Dodger franchise.

Pedro Astacio is still the gold standard for all LAD debuts. Ross Stripling is the only active Dodger with a game score debut > 70, but Kenta Maeda is on the list with a game score debut of 66.

It is not surprising that all of the Japanese imports are on the highest LAD debut game score list since all of them were highly sought free agents from Japan and only technically rookies, but it is always a surprise to remember that the worst of them Kaz Ishii had the best debut.
