METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 27, 1965 GAME:Bob P
October 2, 2005
Heading into this game, tonight's starting pitchers, Warren Spahn and Darrell Sutherland, had combined for 362 career victories. Spahn owned 361 of them!
Sutherland pitched pretty well in this game; he allowed just one run, on a Willie McCovey home run, through six innings. But in the seventh he gave up a single to Jim Ray Hart followed by a Len Gabrielson home run and Sutherland was soon taking a shower.
Tom Parsons and Jim Bethke could not contain the Giants after the Mets pulled within a run on a Charley Smith pinch-homer in the seventh. After an error by Smith, Parsons gave up back-to-back homers to Mays and McCovey in the eighth. Bethke got the first two outs in the ninth but then walked Mays and McCovey and gave up a three-run homer to Hart.
The win for Spahn was the second-to-last of his career.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
