METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 5, 1968 GAME:Walleyeman23
October 16, 2003
I did not attend this game or even have memories of it since I wasn't born until two years later. I do however have a scored original program from this game. Some stats of note. Billy Williams went 3 for 4 with 3 doubles. Ernie Banks had a solo homer in the 6th. Cubs only other run came with Williams scoring on a Ron Santo single. Nye pitched for the Cubs. The Mets scored three times in the 5th with hits by Jones, Swoboda, and Tom Seaver, and a walk to Grote. In the 7th Grote doubled and scored on a single by Charles. Seaver's line, 2 runs, 10 hits, 3 walks, and 3 k's. Just thought someone may be looking for this info someday.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
