Game Rewind: Mets-Cubs (05.30.1963)

On May 30, 1963, the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs split a doubleheader with the Cubs winning Game 1 in a 12-0 rout and the Mets coming back to edge Chicago in Game 2, 2-1 at the The Polo Grounds.

In Game 1, the Cubs scored 10 runs in the fifth inning and pounded Mets pitchers for 15 hits. In the second game of the doubleheader, the two teams combined for just seven hits as the Mets edged the Cubs, 2-1, on Jay Hook’s complete game two-hitter.

Mets Rewind
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
