On June 14, 1962, the New York Mets took a beating from the Houston Colt 45s, 10-2.
Mets starter Jay Hook pitched to six Houston hitters in the first and didn’t record an out, allowing six runs (four earned) and five hits. The 45s scofred seven runs in the first and never looked back.
The Mets offense was led by Marv Throneberry (three hits including his first home run of the season) and Charlie Neal (two hits). Throneberry had a pair of three-hit games in just over a season with the Mets, both coming within five days of each other (June 9 and June 14).
