This was one of the best games Warren Spahn pitched as a Met and the only run came on an opposite field home run by his opponent that night Jim Bunning. Spahn also doubled as the pitching coach and critics felt he left himself in games too long for the short period of time he spent in New York.

At New York, the Phillies Jim Bunning hits a home run and beats Warren Spahn, 1–0. For Bunning, it is his 6th complete game victory against the Mets in six starts, three of them shutouts. Yogi pinch hits late in the game and somewhere there is a self-created score sheet that I had authored while watching on Channel 9.

A cold night in the upper deck of Shea, but what a game to watch. 2 hall of famers going at it, with the junior Bunning providing the margin with a home run over the right field wall. We got in through Borden milk coupons, so how much better could it be? If only Spahn had hit the homer.

What a forgotten Met classic! Two Hall of Fame pitchers hooked up in a 1-0 double complete game with Bunning nailing Warren Spahn with a solo home run. Yogi also makes one of his 4 appearances for Mets.
