METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 24, 1970 GAME:Bob P
June 22, 2004
This was the second game of a doubleheader at Wrigley and was the first major league game for Ken Singleton. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a game started by RHP Archie Reynolds.
Nolan Ryan pitched seven innings and allowed just one hit, a Don Kessinger single leading off the bottom of the first. Kessinger stole second and came around to score on two infield outs. But that was all the offense the Cubs could manage. After Kessinger's single Ryan retired six in a row, walked two consecutive batters, then retired the next fifteen Cubs. He came out after seven innings in which he struck out only two (Cubs first baseman Willie Smith K'd twice).
Ryan also had two hits that helped keep Met rallies alive.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
