One memorable note from this game: Larry Bowa hit into a triple play in the 8th inning against the Mets. He hit a pop fly to Bob Bailor at SS who flipped to Wally Backman to double Jay Johnstone off of 2B and Backman flipped to Dave Kingman to catch Gary Woods off 1B. Mets lost anyway 5-0.
Mets also pulled off another triple play against the Cubs at Shea later in the year on September 29th.

In late innings, Dave Kingman foul-tipped one into the lower seating area behind home, just to the First Base side of the protective net. The ball loudly smacked a woman - who was carrying two beers down the aisle - right square in the chops. First, she spun around, beer splashing all over. Then she went down, like a sack of potatoes. With Kingman looking on, the Andy Frains swarmed her. After about 2 minutes with a hushed crowd watching in anticipation on this very hot afternoon, the lady thankfully revived and got to her feet, to much applause and the relief of all.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
