[VIDEO] June 5, 1964 | Dodgers @ Mets Highlights

June 5, 1964 - The New York Mets scored seven unearned runs in the third inning, three on Ed Kranepool’s homer, and went on to trounce the Los Angeles Dodgers, 8-0, behind the four-hit pitching of Galen Cisco.

Cisco, the losing pitcher in last Sunday’s 23-inning game against San Francisco, turned in his first complete game victory since Sept. 21, 1962. He walked one and struck out three. Except for Willie Davis, who tripled in the first inning, only one Dodger got past first base.

Ron Fairly’s error on Cisco’s grounder paved the way for the Mets’ outburst in the third. The ball went through Fairly’s legs. Before Kranepool connected, the Mets scored on Roy McMIllan’s sacrifice fly, Ron Hunt’s double, and a single by Joe Christopher.

Charlie Smith followed Kranepool’s blast with a home run. That send Dodger starter Joe Moeller from the mount.

The game drew 54,790, boosting the Mets’ total for 20 games to 497,350.
