Dodgers Destroy Mets, 17-8, in Los Angeles

May 25, 1962 - Disaster engulfed the Mets on all fronts tonight as the Dodgers swept the three-game series with a crushing 17-8 triumph before 26,907 in Los Angeles. It was the largest score by a Dodger team since Walter Alston’s cast moved to the West Coast from Brooklyn after the 1957 season. Routing Al Jackson in the third, the Dodgers scored six runs in the inning and added six in the sixth. Maury Wills (pictured) paced the Dodger attack with four hits and three stolen bases that brought his season total to 22. It was the Dodgers’ fifth straight victory and the Mets’ fifth loss in a row.
