With momentum from winning 7 in a row at home, the Mets traveled to the West Coast in early June. The Mets first swept a 3-game series against the San Diego Padres, including a comeback 3-2 win on June 8 in the final game. They extended their win streak to 11 games with a 9-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants on June 10. It was the Mets’ longest win streak of the 1969 season.
