On September 17, 1986, the New York Mets magic number was one.
Dwight Gooden was the starting pitcher against the Chicago Cubs at Shea Stadium. The Mets were at home, their ace on the mound … what could go wrong? On this day, not a thing. Gooden pitched a complete game six hitter as the Mets rolled over the Cubs, 4-2, to clinch the National League Eastern Division title.
