Top Dodger pitching game scores in postseason play against Cardinals – Jose Lima still on top

September 29, 2014

Jose Lima 2004 NLDS Victory

Jose Lima holds a special place for most Dodger fans. His inexplicable shutout of the Cardinals in game three of the 2004 NLDS was as unlikely an event as has ever happened in the postseason at the Ravine.

Wow, three of the top five game scores performances against the Cardinals in the postseason happened last October, and the Dodgers still managed to lose the series in six games.

Padilla was of course the pitching star  in the 2009 NLDS , leading the Dodgers to the NLCS where he did not fare as well.

I guess for context we should look at every start. Seeing Clayton Kershaw on the bottom is very very sad.  At least three more games will get added this year.
