This first game of a Mother's Day doubleheader at Shea marked the first appearance of Roger Craig against the Mets. Craig had been traded after the 1963 season to the Cardinals for George Altman and Bill Wakefield.

Roger came into the game with a 2-0 record, and he pitched very well in this game for 7.1 innings, allowing just one run, five hits, and no walks. But in the eighth inning of a 1-1 game Rod Kanehl hit a one-out home run. That turned out to be the game-winning hit, and it was the final home run of Kanehl's career. Ron Hunt followed with a double and Jim Hickman singled him home. Craig left the game for veteran Lew Burdette, and Mets added another run.

Tracy Stallard pitched a complete game for the Mets, allowing one run and five hits while striking out nine. Tim McCarver drove in the only Cardinal run with a single in the seventh inning.

Craig lost another game to the Mets in September and finished his career with a 15-46 record for the Mets and an 0-2 record against the Mets.

This was the opening game of the first doubleheader ever at Shea. The Mets lost this game but won the nightcap to get a split. The second doubleheader at Shea was three weeks later and is a bit more remembered.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
