July 13, 2004
In his second-to-last appearance as a Met, Dennis Ribant faces Jim Maloney and comes out on the short end. Maloney strikes out thirteen as the Reds shellack the Mets. 7-0.
Ribant finished the 1966 season with an 11-9 record for a team that went 66-95. His ERA was 3.20, almost half a run better than the league average that year.
In December 1966 he was traded to the Pirates along with Gary Kolb in exchange for Don Bosch and Don Cardwell. Ribant won only eleven more games in his career after the trade and pitched his final major league game a week after his 28th birthday in September 1969.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
