Mets Drop Their 10th Straight in Loss to Braves

July 25, 1962 - Joe Adcock and Eddie Mathews (pictured) crashed two home runs apiece in Milwaukee today, making it a simple chore for the Braves to hand the Mets their 10th straight loss. The score was 11-5. Mathews took the first big crack at Roger Craig’s offerings for a two-run homer into deep center in the first inning. Before the inning had ended, Adcock hit a homer just inside the left-field foul pole. In the fifth, Mathews slammed his 20th homer of the year with a man on. Mets’ reliever Wilmer Mizell was the victim of a grand slam by Adcock into the left-field corner in the seventh. Mizell had walked three batters. Adcock’s grand slam was his second of the season and the 10th of his career. He ranks fourth in National League history in this department. Only Gil Hodges at 14 and Ralph Kiner and Rogers Hornsby at 12 each are ahead of him.
