The New York Mets squeezed out a win against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, 2-1. The Mets scored the eventual winning run in the sixth inning when Jim Hickman scored on a wild pitch by Cubs starter Dick Ellsworth.
Roger Craig started for New York, pitching 8 1/3 innings and allowing one run and 10 hits to improve his record to 3-8. Ken MacKenzie relieved Craig with one out in the ninth inning to record his first save of the season.
