Game Rewind: Mets @ Dodgers (05.24.1962)


When the New York Mets arrived in Los Angeles for a three-game series with the Dodgers they were in the early stages of what would be a miserable losing streak.

In the fourth inning, Frank Thomas delivered a two-run home run off Johnny Podres to give the New York Mets a 2-1 lead at Chavez Ravine. The Mets held that lead until the seventh inning until the Dodgers tied the game, and eventually took the lead, on their way to a 4-2 win. It was the fourth straight loss of road trip, dropping the Mets to 12-23 on the season.

The losing streak continued for two more weeks. On June 8, the Mets finally snapped their 17-game losing streak, beating the Chicago Cubs, 4-3, at Wrigley Field.

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.
