Game Rewind: Padres at Mets (07.04.1972)

On July 4, 1972, New York Mets ace Tom Seaver took a no-hitter into the ninth inning against the San Diego Padres. After recording the first out, Padres outfielder Leron Lee singles to spoil the no-hit bid. Seaver induces Nate Colbert to hit into a game-ending double play.

The Mets win 2-0. It’s the second time in Seaver carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning at Shea Stadium. Both times — vs. Cubs (1969) and vs, Padres (1972) — the no-hitter was snapped.

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.
