METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 8, 1965 GAME:
January 23, 2004
After losing game one of this doublehader at Shea, 7-6, the Mets take a lead into the ninth inning of game two. But the Cubs score six runs in the top of the ninth inning to win the game, 14-10, and sweep the four game series. Cubs catcher Chris Krug strikes out twice in that ninth inning.
It's the eighth straight loss for the Mets on their way to eleven straight (their longest streak of the year), and drops their record to 34- 78.

Recently released by the Mets, Warren Spahn wins his 361st victory and first as a Giant. San Francisco beats the Cards 6–4 ... In New York, the Cubs score six runs in the 9th inning to whip the Mets, 14–10. Chris Krug is not much help in the 9th, as the Cubbie strikes out twice. It's the first time since 1922 a Cub has K'ed twice in one inning.
I think that this was a banner day doubleheader. If I am correct, the famous " Don't Get Sore, The Mets And I Are Only Four" banner was paraded around the diamond between games and made the '66 yearbook!
