METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 25, 1965 GAME:Bob P
April 28, 2006
In the first game of a Sunday doubleheader at Candlestick Park, Juan Marichal ran his record against the Mets to 11-0 with a five-hit shutout. Marichal struck out nine, and the Mets got just three runners as far as second base in the game.
It was Marichal's second shutout against the Mets in nine days, and he would shut them out twice more in 1965.
At this point, Marichal had pitched 101.1 innings against the Mets and had allowed just twelve earned runs.
In the game the Giants jumped on Al Jackson early. Willie McCovey hit a two run homer in the first, Hal Lanier had a two-run triple in the second, and Jose Pagan had an RBI double in the third. Jackson lost for the third time in three starts. But after winning game two of the doubleheader, the Mets were 6-7 and ended the day half a game ahead of the 5-7 Giants.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
