This was a nationally televised prime time game on NBC.

This was a big game in Mets history because it was a network game and the nation got a first glimpse at the great Tom Seaver, who pitched a complete game victory.
The biggest highlight was Eddie Kranepool's three-run homer off Bob Bolin in the bottom of the fourth that put the Mets up to stay. In his earlier at bat Krane had almost put one out but was eventually retired. In the fourth he hit a bomb and Shea errupted.
The next morning the back page of the New York Daily News said in a huge headline, "Kranepool HRs Giants, 5-3." I cut it out and still have it to this day, one of my great memories of the early Mets years.
