1973 NLCS: Jon Matlack Beats Pete Rose
Date: October 6–10, 1973
Pete Rose, the future MLB all-time hits leader, made consistent contact during the 1973 NLCS. The Cincinnati Reds slugger recorded 2 home runs and 8 hits in the five-game series. Mets ace Jon Matlack did well against Rose in Game 2 by keeping him hitless and off the board.
