Grienke six total bases on Saturday ties him with fourth best total base performance by a LA Dodger pitcher

September 15, 2014

Darren Dreifort
The Dodgers have had thirteen games in which a pitcher has had at least six total bases, putting Zach Grienke’s performance on the leaderboard. It was a little surprising when I created this list to find that Chad Billingsley was on the list twice. I expected Don Drysdale to dominant the list. I do remember everyone below as being known as a good hitter except for Hideo Nomo. Darren Dreifort of course came out of Wichita State as a two way player who hit a ton of home runs in college.

Zach came within two feet of tying Claude Osteen and Don Drysdale for the second best performance.

One final note. The Dodgers won every single one of these games.  The margin on Saturday was 17 – 0, the previous highest margin of victory was the 19 – 3 drubbing that Claude Osteen put on the Giants in 1970.  Maybe we should look at that game some time. How about on the next May 26th?
