Having fun with Walker Buehler Game Scores

Walker Buehler put up a game score of 88 on August 3rd, giving him three games scores > 80 in 2019. This would make him the third right-handed Dodger in the 21st century to have three-game scores > 80 in the same season. Andy Ashby did it once in 2002 Brad Penny did it once …

Big and Little D dominate 1 – 0 loser list

I was right about Don Sutton leading the Dodgers in losing 1 – 0 games but he had company from his big brother Don Drysdale. They both did it a staggering nine times. This points to two things. They were both incredible pitchers, and they both pitched for some bad offensive teams. The list below …

Best K games against Cardinals at Dodger Stadium – The Lefties own it

This isn’t a surprise, to be honest I expect Kershaw and Koufax to be at the top of this list every time. Which is why it was refreshing to see Nomo and Fernando hit the top now and then to change things up. This list really is a who’s who of LAD pitching mountaintop. Good …
