Game Rewind: Cardinals at Mets (09.24.1969)

Donn Clendenon hit a pair of home runs and Gary Gentry pitched a complete game shutout, 6-0, against the St. Louis Cardinals to lead the New York Mets to their first-ever National League Eastern division title on this date in 1969.

The Mets scored five times in the first inning off Steve Carlton of the Cardinals and never looked back. Gentry allowed just four singles and only one Cardinals hitter reached second base in the historic win for the Mets.
