D-Whit - It Was 45 Years Ago Today...September 27th 1969


September 27th

Seaver congratulated after winning 25th
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.
