Expansion Baseball: Mets 1962
On September 9, 1962, the Mets played their fellow expansion-class cousins, the Houston Colt .45s (now known as the Astros). The game went 10 innings, but the Mets lost it when Houston’s Bob Lillis scored on a wild pitch by Mets starter Roger Craig. No word on whether skipper Casey Stengel regretted the batting order.
