April 28, 2006
In his fourth major league appearance and his third start, Tom Seaver pitches a ten inning complete game victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
A sixth inning RBI single by Jerry Grote gave the Mets a 1-0 lead.
Seaver allowed just four singles through eight innings. But leading off the ninth, Don Kessinger drew a walk. After Seaver retired the next two batters, an error by Buddy Harrelson brought the tying run home.
Despite having thrown 104 pitches, Seaver came to bat to lead off the tenth inning. He singled to right off Cubs reliever Bill Hands. With runners at the corners and two outs, Al Luplow singled off LHP Bob Hendley to drive in Seaver with the go-ahead run. Tom set the Cubs down in order on just seven pitches in the bottom of the tenth for the second of his 311 career wins and the first of his 231 complete games.
