Giant Win Over Giants: Mets Lineup 1969
Date: August 31, 1969
The Mets squared off against the San Francisco Giants in the first game of a doubleheader during a late-season West Coast trip. Ron Swoboda, Jerry Grote and Tom Seaver broke open the 4th inning with hits that drive in five runs. Backed by an 11-strikeout performance from the franchise ace, the Mets breezed to an 8-0 victory over the Giants on the road.
