April 20, 2004
Dick Farrell (4-6) and lefty Al Jackson (3-7) hook up in a good pitching dual with New York and Jackson winning 3-1. The game was scoreless until the fifth when the Mets put together a walk, a triple by Sammy Taylor and Jim Hickmanís single for a 2-0 lead. Doubles by Norm Larker and Merritt Ranew scored Houstonís only run in the bottom of the inning. A base on balls and Charlie Nealís single accounted for the final run of the game in the sixth. Farrell gave New York only six hits while striking out nine Mets and walking four. The .45s picked up seven hits off Jackson but fell victim to three New York double plays.

Only game the Mets won in Houston in 1962. They also lost seven and had one tie. They weren't much better playing in the Polo Grounds against their fellow expansion team going 2-6.
