Game Rewind: Mets-Dodgers (05.30.1962)

On May 30, 1962, the New York Mets were swept in a doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers, 13-6 in Game 1 and 6-5 in Game 2 at The Polo Grounds.

Sandy Koufax, who dominated the Mets throughout his career (17-2 career win-loss record with a 1.44 ERA in 20 starts), fired a complete game in the opener. Koufax allowed six runs and 13 hits in the Dodgers win and Maury Wills hit a pair of home runs in the first game, including an inside-the-park home run in the fifth inning.

Gil Hodges led the Mets in Game 2, hitting a pair of home runs off his former team. With the score tied 5-5 in the ninth inning, Dodgers outfielder Willie Davis delivered the eventual game-winning hitting, a solo home run off Mets reliever Craig Anderson.
