The Mets lost a doubleheader to the Dodgers that day. It was my first time at the Polo Grounds. Koufax started the first game for the Dodgers and Drysdale pitched the second. Maury Wills hit 2 home runs in the first game. An inside the park and a 'Bobby Thompson' short porch home run to left. Koufax also hit a home run. The Mets pulled their first triple play in the nite cap.

The first-ever Met triple play was in the top of the 6th of the nightcap of the doubleheader. Willie Davis hit a liner that Chacon caught and flipped to Neal at 2B who flipped to Hodges at 1B. Maury Wills and Jim Gilliam were the runners caught off base.

To clear up what jroth said, Johnny Podres pitched the 2nd game, (not Drysdale) and as he was walking to the clubhouse when he was removed from the game , a fan leaned over the bleacher screen and spit in his face. Also, Koufax did not hit a HR in the first game. It was quite day at Coogans Bluff even though our Mets lost 2 games to the team that broke the hearts of all Brooklynites in 1957.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
