Six Dodgers with 70 runs scored

This year's Dodger team has six players with at least 70 runs scored: James Loney, Matt Kemp, Casey Blake, Rafael Furcal, Orlando Hudson, and Andre Ethier.  It seems unlikely that anyone will join them in the final ten games, with Russell Martin at 60 and Manny Ramirez at 58. 

This is only the the fifth team in Los Angeles Dodgers history to do so. The last Dodger team to have six 70-run players was 1999.  The 1974 and 1977 NL champion teams also accomplished this feat.  The 102-win, but second-place 1962 Dodgers, actually had all six players with at least 80 runs, although they did have three extra regular-season games due to the three-game playoff.

Loney and Hudson have exactly 70 runs scored, so it seems highly unlikely either will reach 80, let alone both.

Los Angeles Dodger teams with at least six players with 70 or more runs scored:

2009 James Loney, Matt Kemp, Casey Blake, Rafael Furcal, Orlando Hudson, Andre Ethier
1999 Adrian Beltre, Mark Grudzielanek, Eric Young, Eric Karros, Gary Sheffield, Raul Mondesi
1977 Reggie Smith, Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Ron Cey, Bill Russell, Dusty Baker
1974 Bill Buckner, Ron Cey, Davey Lopes, Willie Crawford, Steve Garvey, Jimmy Wynn
1962 Frank Howard, Maury Wills, Tommy Davis, Willie Davis, Jim Gilliam, Ron Fairley

 

I didn't research the Brooklyn Dodgers thoroughly, but the 1953 Dodgers had seven players over 80 runs scored, with six of them over 100.  Carl Furillo had 82; the 100+ guys were Pee Wee Reese, Rookie of the Year Jim Gilliam, Gil Hodges, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, and Roy Campenella.
