Tom Seaver kept up his hot pitching in 1970, leading the league with a 2.82 ERA and 283 strikeouts. He added another milestone that season from the batter’s box by hitting his first career home run. His fifth-inning solo shot helped the Mets defeat the Montreal Expos at home, 7-1, on July 9. And Seaver was classic Seaver on the hill: a complete game win with 9 Ks.
