Charlie Smith led the Mets offense with a pair of home runs and a triple and Ed Kranepool added three hits, but the highlight of the day was the Banner Day celebration between games of the doubleheader. According to the New York Times, 1,700 banners “paraded around the stadium … and pleaded them (Mets) to ‘pray’ to ‘resist’ and ‘arise.'”
The Mets legendary trio of Bob Murphy, Lindsey Nelson and Ralph Kiner provide the play-by-play on this 1965 game rewind.
