Dodgers Tie or Break NLDS Marks

The Dodgers three-game sweep of Chicago in the National League Division Series altered a number of Dodgers records. Manny Ramirez, James Loney, Chad Billingsley and Jonathan Broxton set new marks and the team recorded two new standards. The 2008 averages and the top five in each category are listed in these LADugout.com exclusive records.

Ramirez put his name in the record book three times, topping the charts in on base percentage (OBP), Slugging (slug), On-base+slugging (OBP) and Runs scored. He was also second to Jeff Kent (.615) with a .500 batting average.

James Loney knocked in six runs to put himself second on the list (tied with Kirk Gibson 1988), in fact Loney knocked in as many as the entire Chicago team.

Chad Billingsley struck out seven Cubs on October 2 to erase a four-way tie between Fernando Valenzuela, Ismael Valdes and Hideo Nomo and Ramon Martinez who each had six. Jonathan Broxton recorded the only Dodgers NLDS save.

The 2008 team also set new records in slugging (.421) and on-base+slugging (.787); plus was second in on-base percentage (.345).
