May 24, 2006
In the second game of a doubleheader the Mets hand the Braves their first-ever loss in Atlanta. Mets starter Tug McGraw goes seven innings for his first win of the season. It was also Tug's first start of 1966.
Felipe Alou hit two homers in the game for the Braves, one off McGraw and one off Larry Bearnarth. Tug also gave up a solo homer to Dennis Menke.
With the Mets up 2-1 Tug was the first batter in the top of the seventh and drew a walk off Clay Carroll. One out later Tug came around to score after a Roy McMillan single and an error by Eddie Mathews. Ken Boyer hit a sac fly to drive in the fourth Mets run.
