Game Rewind: Mets-Dodgers (05.30.1962)

On May 30, 1962, the New York Mets were swept in a doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers, 13-6 in Game 1 and 6-5 in Game 2 at The Polo Grounds.

Sandy Koufax, who dominated the Mets throughout his career (17-2 career win-loss record with a 1.44 ERA in 20 starts), fired a complete game in the opener. Koufax allowed six runs and 13 hits in the Dodgers win and Maury Wills hit a pair of home runs in the first game, including an inside-the-park home run in the fifth inning.

Gil Hodges led the Mets in Game 2, hitting a pair of home runs off his former team. With the score tied 5-5 in the ninth inning, Dodgers outfielder Willie Davis delivered the eventual game-winning hitting, a solo home run off Mets reliever Craig Anderson.

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.
