Is there anything better than crushing the Cardinals?

29 Jun

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andre Ethier and three of his Dodger teammates hit RBI doubles during a six-run second inning Saturday en route to a 9-1 victory over St. Louis, enabling Zack Greinke to become the third NL pitcher to reach double digits in wins.

Hard to believe, but dating to April 17, 2011, the Dodgers have won 16 of the last 25 regular-season games vs. the Cardinals.

Clayton Kershaw pitches today. He hasn’t given up a run in 21 straight innings. Here are the longest scoreless-inning streaks in L.A. Dodgers history (thanks to Dodgers Insider for the info):

59: Orel Hershiser, 1988 (this is the Major League Baseball record, by the way)
58: Don Drysdale, 1968
35: Don Sutton, 1972
33: Sandy Koufax, 1963
27: Don Sutton, 1969
26: Don Drysdale, 1960
26: Sandy Koufax, 1963
25: Wilson Alvarez, 2003
25: Andy Messersmith, 1975
25: Fernando Valenzuela, 1985
25: Don Drysdale, 1967

Interesting that Koufax’s name is on this list only twice. I bet he had a LOT of scoreless streaks lasting 19 to 24 innings. 🙂 And what the heck is Wilson Alvarez’s name doing on this list?
