Game Rewind: Cardinals at Mets (09.24.1969)

Donn Clendenon hit a pair of home runs and Gary Gentry pitched a complete game shutout, 6-0, against the St. Louis Cardinals to lead the New York Mets to their first-ever National League Eastern division title on this date in 1969.

The Mets scored five times in the first inning off Steve Carlton of the Cardinals and never looked back. Gentry allowed just four singles and only one Cardinals hitter reached second base in the historic win for the Mets.

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.
