Kershaw 102 Game Score rides high

When it comes to game score, breaking 100 is the platinum barrier and Clayton Kershaw broke the barrier with his no-hitter against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. That is not surprising. What is surprising is that Ted Lilly has the second-best game score against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. Ted Lilly! This list has all …

Grandal / Kemp lead LAD Total Base leaderboard against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium

Given how hot the Dodger offense is right now, and how badly the Rockie pitching is lately, I could easily see a scenario where this leaderboard gets updated on Monday morning. Yazmani Grandal has the best total base game ever against the Rockies, and he did it last September. Matt Kemp is the only other …

Talk about a rewrite

On Monday, June 19th I posted the best total base games by any Dodgers against the Mets at Dodger Stadium. At the time I was surprised to find that the Dodgers have never had a double-digit total base game with that criteria. That Monday night Cody Bellinger tied Gary Sheffield and Jim Lefebvre with the best …

LAD Single Season HR Leaders

With Cody Bellinger well on his way to leading the 2017 team in home runs, I thought it would be a good time to look at every single LAD single-season home run leader. Several LAD have led their team in home runs four times. Frank Howard, Ron Cey, and Pedro Guerrero, but only Mike Piazza …

LAD Team Home Run Leaders, 25 or younger

Youth is being served on the 2017 LAD team. As Corey Seager rounded 3rd base after hitting his 3rd home run I couldn’t help but marvel at the power being displayed by the youngest players on the team. The four top home run hitters on the team are Bellinger (21), Seager (23),  Puig (26), and Taylor(26). …

Mike Kekich rears his strange head

Sandy Koufax has the best game score against the NYM at Dodger Stadium, courtesy of his no-hitter in 1962. It was far from a perfect game since Sandy walked five. It was also against one of the worst teams in baseball history, the newly formed NYM in 1962. The game that catches my eye though, …

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 …

Chasing Piazza on June 19th

For twenty years it looked like Mike Piazza’s LAD rookie record of 35 home runs would stand the test of time. Since 2015, however, it has had Dodger rookies taking good cuts at it. Puig never had a chance in 2013 given he didn’t get started until June but still hit 19 home runs in only …

Alex Wood almost cracks game score leaderboard

During the broadcast tonight, Joe Davis and Orel starting talking about game scores.  Orel was wondering if the current game score by Alex was close to the brilliant game that Clayton pitched. Joe correctly said no because Wood only had five strikeouts. At the time Wood had a game score over 80 which is excellent …

Puig – Nobody – Pederson – Seager – Bellinger

Home runs are up all over baseball and nowhere is that more apparent than at Dodger Stadium where rookie after rookie keep launching home runs. Prior to 2014, the most LAD rookie home runs was the magic 35 by Mike Piazza in 1993. The 2nd most was 23 by Frank Howard back in 1960 before …
