Trea Turner 4 SB in 1 game: How about Davey Lopes’ 5 SB?

Checking out Trea Turner’s achievement of 4 stolen bases in 1 game in MLB history, we came across Davey Lopes (NATS 1st Base Coach) and his amazing SB history, along with a few Senators with dominant base stealer records.

Davey Lopes was an ace base stealer.  Take a look at these stats:

Stole 5 bases in 1 game on Aug 24, 1974 (with the Dodgers, vs. the Cardinals).

Set the new record for consecutive stolen bases – breaking a record of 31 set in 1922 by Max Carey – of 38 in 1975 (from June 6 to Aug 24 – with the Dodgers).

#9 in Stolen Base %, career:  557 stolen bases, 671 attempts for a SB % of 83.01%.  The #1 is Chase Utley with 88.8%.

Most stolen bases in 1 game (since 1900):   Eddie Collins of the Athletics was the first to 6 stolen bases in one game; he did it twice (Sept 11, 1912 and Sept 22, 1912).  Other players with 6:  Otis Nixon (1991 – Braves), Eric Young (1996 – Rockies), Carl Crawford (2009 – Rays).

Washington Senators base stealers:

**Clyde Milan:  had 5 stolen bases in 1 game on June 14, 1912 (Eddie Collins had his 6 in 1912 too – see above).

**George Case:  League leader in stolen bases, 5 or more seasons (1939-43).
