HOUSTON, WE HAVE A METS DOUBLEHEADER
The Mets suffered a tough 8-0 shutout to the Houston Astros in the first game of a doubleheader at home. Jerry Koosman, who had a cup of coffee with the Mets that season, picked up his first career loss. The Mets fared better in the second game of the evening, beating the Astros 8-5. Longtime Mets employee Matt Winick kept score of games that season in a 1967 scorebook.
