Posted by D Whit at 7:28 PM
The Mets win their 98th and Tom Seaver his 25th as New York shutouts the Phils 1-0 at Connie Mack Stadium. Seaver was brilliant on the hill-giving up just three hits with 4 K’s on the afternoon.
Philadelphia starter Grant Jackson matched him through 7 but ran into trouble in the 8th. Donn Clendenon singled with two down and Ron Swoboda followed with a base on balls. The next batter Bobby Pfeil stroked a single to left center, driving in Clendenon with the game’s only run.
