It seems this was Warren Spahn's first game in Milwaukee as a non-member of the Braves. It seems he pitched well and unraveled in the 5th. Does any body remember this game? What was the crowd's reaction to Spahn? Was the building sold out? I'm really curious. Please help!

Great memories with my father on a Father's Day (and my birthday) doubleheader seeing Spahn, Koufax and Drysdale all pitch from our nosebleed seats on a sold-out Sunday; Koufax bested Spahn with a one hitter, but Spahn had a courageous end-of-career performance!

According to, former Yankees catcher Johnny Blanchard pinch-hit for Henry Aaron in this game. Given the final score, I assume it was late in the game!

The Mets are on the wrong end of a one-hitter for the second stright day as Tony Cloninger wins, 9–0. Henry Aaron has two hits, a stolen base, an RBI, and a run scored before leaving for pinch hitter Johnny Blanchard.

This was the first live Mets game I ever attended, with my dad, brother, uncle and 2 cousins. We sat in the field level behind third base. I was only six years old and I don't remember too much about the game except for Cleon Jones getting the only hit for the Mets toward the middle of the game.

Here's what I remember from this game.....I got free tickets and sat in the loge box section between home and first. Best seats I had to that date. Ron Hunt led off with a near home-run that just curved foul at the left field pole. He worked out an infield hit to second base. Woody Fryman proceeded to retire the next 27 batters. To top things off Jose Pagan hit a grand slam. Probably his only one. Woirst game I ever attended.

Friday night, school's been out just a few days, oh, to be young, free and a Mets fan in 1966!

The big bad Pirates are in town. I remember Don Sutton saying of these sluggers, "Some hitters wait for a fastball, others look for a curve, these guys just look for a baseball."

Alley, STARGELL, CLEMENTE, Clendenon, Alou, Mota were all hitting over .300 and Woody Fryman (no relation to Travis) took the hill.

The rookie lefthander surrended a lead off base hit to Ron Hunt. If I REMEMBER correctly, Hunt was picked off or erased on a double play ball. The next 27 METS were retired. In effect, Fryman, who went 12-9 that year tossed a perfect game. The Mets dropped a 12-0 game.

A few more details about this pitching gem.

Pitcher Woody Fryman threw a one-hitter as the Pirates clobbered the New York Mets, 12-0, at Shea Stadium. It was the sixth consecutive victory for the Pirates (44-29).

Fryman gave up a single to the Mets' leadoff hitter, Ron Hunt, and was perfect after that. Fryman struck out eight and raised his record to 6-3.

Roberto Clemente went 1 for 5 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. Willie Stargell hit his 16th home run of the season.

November 16, 2004

Fryman only faced 27 batters - 26 after Hunt was out stealing. I do not remember whether the steal attempt occurred because Hunt was picked off.

I stand corrected. Jose Pagan did not hit a grand slam, rather he hit a 2 run homer --- 1 of the 4 dingers he hit that year.

The Mets get three runs but only one hit in this game.

Swoboda's single in the 7th inning broke up this no-hit bid by future Yankee Kekich in his rookie year. He was 2-10 for the Dodgers (who finished in 8th place just ahead of the Mets) in his rookie year and this was one of his two victories. It was also the only shutout of his major league career.

Holy sheesh! You have the boxscores!! I remember this game, I was there! We were sitting in the Dairylea grandstand seats and there was a huge fire off in the distance somewhere in Flushing just as the game started. I can remember being distracted by that for a while and I guess the Mets were too.

I definately remember Stearns getting the only hit and being very disgusted about the Mets losing to the lowly 'Spos.

David Graf
October 5, 2006

Not only did Stearns get the only hit, he also made one of the all time defensive plays in Met history. I'm not sure who was hitting (I think it was Fryman) or what inning it was, but an Expo attempting to bunt fouled and an outstretched Stearns made a lunging bare handed catch and doubled off the runner on first. I still remember Fryman discussing this on Kiner's Korner simply by saying, "He was in my hair all day."

St Louis RHP Silvio Martinez made his first major league start and threw a one-hitter against the Mets. The only hit was a Steve Henderson leadoff home run in the seventh inning. The Mets got their other run on a walk, infield out, and two wild pitches. George Hendrick had a three-run homer for the Cards.

Martinez pitched two 1-hitters and two 2-hitters in 1978, but finished the year with just a 9-8 record. In 1980 he went 15-8 for the Cardinals, but was out of baseball after the 1981 season due mainly to elbow problems.

August 31, 2011

Yep, I remember this one very well. I was 13 and about to graduate from the 8th grade. My friend's father treated us by taking us out to see the Mets play the Cardinals at Shea. We had great seats, field level behind third base. Little did we know that we would nearly witness a no-hitter by a pitcher making his major league debut, which really would have been something. The very late '70s were a dark, dark time for the Mets.

July 15, 2014

My memory of watching this game was that the Mets announcers weren't sure if it was his major league debut or not! As the game progressed they found out that it was his first start, but he had pitched in relief prior; at which point they started to wonder who had thrown a no-hitter closest to his major league debut, which led to a discussion of Bobo Holloman. Can you imagine in this day and age, announcers not having info on every pitch thrown by a pitcher in his career, let alone whether or not he had pitched in the majors yet?! And, by the fifth inning a graphic would be up on the screen of all the no-hitters thrown by rookie pitchers and in which start they did it!

I remember being at this game on a Saturday afternoon. 10 -yrs old at the time. John Denny only gave up 1 hit and it was an infield hit by John Stearns on what from what I can recall was a questionable call. It wasn't late in the game so it didn't stand out as ruining a no hitter but it turns out being the only hit the Mets got that day.

Bob P
September 8, 2006

Howie, You're right. Stearns' single came leading off the seventh on a grounder toward second base. Mike Tyson fielded it and threw to first baseman Roger Freed but first base umpire Paul Pryor said Freed took his foot off the bag. The play was ruled a single, the first Mets hit of the game. But they had aleady scored a run: in the fourth inning the Mets put together a walk, groundout, and an error by Garry Templeton (AKA a vintage 1978 Mets rally) for their only run of the game. So that might also be why the single didn't stand out as ruining the no- hitter. Had the Cardinals' Gold Glove first baseman--Keith Hernandez--started the game, this may have been a no-hitter for John Denny!

And speaking of "vintage 1978," a whopping 8,658 fans attended this Saturday afternoon game.

The Mets came into this doubleheader with a 77-56 record, just half a game behind the first place Pirates. Long-time nemesis Zane Smith pitched game one for Pittsburgh. Keith Miller led off the game with a single, then Smith retired the next eight batters before walking Miller with two outs in the third. From that point forward, Smith retired the final 19 Mets to come to the plate. The Pirates scored a run in the bottom of the ninth on a bases loaded single by Barry Bonds (after Bobby Bonilla was intentionally walked with one out and runners at second and third). Frank Viola pitched well for 8 innings, but it went down the drain.

Zane Smith gave up a single to the leadoff batter in the game, then got 27 outs without giving up another hit!! That has only happened three other times since September, 1990. Thanks to Jayson Stark of and for that info.

The Mets lost the second game of the doubleheader and lost again the next night to the Pirates. They wound up scoring just two runs and collecting just 11 hits in the three games, and the first collapse of the Buddy Harrelson era was underway.

I was at this dreadful double-header. In this game, it felt like the Mets were down 12-0, even though it was only 2-0. Chris Nabholz dominated with a 1-hitter.

The Mets could do nothing against left-handers at this point, and that is why they didn't win the division this year.

In one of the flukiest games ever, the Mets were one hit by Greg Harris. What made it fluky, however, was that my main man, Mackey Sasser, started in right field, got the Mets' only hit, and robbed TWO home runs. Pure insanity.

At the Vet, Sid Fernandez allows just two runs and five hits while striking out nine, but it's not good enough.

The Phils' Curt Schilling pitches a one-hitter, with the only hit a fifth inning leadoff homer by Bobby Bonilla. Schilling does not walk anyone and the only other Met batter to reach base was Chico Walker, who was awarded first base on catcher's interference with two outs in the fourth inning.

John Kruk drove in both Phillie runs with an infield out and a single.

Anthony Young, desperate for a win to stop his consecutive wins streak, retired something like 20 straight batters until Kevin Higgins singled with 2 outs in the 8th, and then Archi Cianfrocco hit a 2-run homer for the only 2 runs of the game.

That summer it was extremely hot and that day the air conditioning wasn't working at the office so we were all sent home rather than stew in our own juices and smell the "aroma" of everyone else "stewing." So I watched this game that afternoon on TV. Like everyone, I was hoping that AY would break the streak, if not, at least not lose.

Well this game, he was Seaver, Clemens, Carlton, Greg Maddux and Nolan Ryan all rolled into one. However so was the pitcher for the Padres that game and the over-achieving AY was being betrayed by his under-achieving offense. The announcers were on the edge of their seats, the fans were on the edge of their seats, I was on the edge of my seat. Then that fateful 8th inning came upon.

When Cianfrocco hit that home run, it was one of the few times I saw Bobby Bonilla put an effort into something by practically scaling the wall to try to catch the ball but no luck and pounded his glove against the wall out of disgust and Dallas Green came out to the mound and was consoling AY like he was a little boy whose dog just died. You could hear a cumultive gasp from the announcers, crowd, and me as well. I give AY all the credit in the world; he acted like a true professional during "the streak."

They even tracked down the great great grand niece of the guy (she was about 8 at the time) and she asked AY to win a game so her great great grand uncle can keep his record. Weird.

An eighth inning double by Rico Brogna was the only Mets hit off Padres RHP Andy Benes.

Benes, who led the league in strikeouts in 1994, struck out thirteen in this game and had a three-run double in the fifth inning. He picked up his sixth win, which turned out to be his final win of the strike-shortened season.

This was the night Howie Rose legitimately complained on the air about the unnecessary delayed start of the game, which was supposed to be 1:00 in the afternoon. Game time got pushed back seven hours because of the “network stooge” that believes a national TV audience is more important than the locals on hand who actually pay money for tickets. Inconveniencing the real fans in this manner is not good for baseball or any other sport. Howie was right when he gave some hell to that Evil Source of Pathetic Nonsense that believes a national TV audience is more important than the locals on hand who actually pay money for tickets.
