PUNCHING THEIR TICKET TO THE FALL CLASSIC
With Games 1 and 2 victories on the road, the Mets ended the 1969 NLCS in a sweep by winning Game 3 at Shea Stadium. Nolan Ryan earned the win as the Mets rolled the Atlanta Braves, 7-4. The cost to watch the Mets claim their first pennant in franchise history? Just $7 from a mezzanine box.
