METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 12, 1965 GAME:
July 4, 2004
In his second start in the major leagues, Selma defeated the Braves, 1-0, and recorded 13 strikeouts -- at that time, a record for a Mets' pitcher
July 19, 2006
Dick Selma became the first Mets pitcher to win his first two starts in the major leagues. Selma threw a ten-inning shutout, allowing just four singles, a walk, and a hit batsman.
Milwaukee pitcher Bob Sadowski took the tough- luck loss. Sadowski allowed just three hits through nine innings, but gave up a single to Joe Christopher leading off the tenth. Ron Hunt bunted Christopher over, and after Ron Swoboda grounded out, Charley Smith delivered the game- winning single to center and the Mets had the win.

Up until this game, I was a noninterested 12-year-old living in LI, NY. The announcing of Lindsey Nelson and Ralph Kiner, and the improbable win in what seemed like a mismatch (weren't they all back then?) made me a Mets fan for life.
