1969 World Series Champions-New York Mets


It took the seven full games, but the New York Mets earned their first World Series trophy. The big boppers that helped Baltimore power their way into the title matchup were held largely in check by the Mets stellar pitching. The Mets jumped out to an early 1-0 lead winning game 1 by the slimmest of margins, 3-2. The Orioles tied up the Series 1-1 with a 4-0 win scratching across 13 hits while starter Jim Palmer threw 8 marvelous innings allowing only 3 hits and 2 walks. The first 2 games would set the tone for the rest of the Series as the teams traded wins back and forth. Pitching would be the story of the series, as 5 runs by winning teams were the most scored in any matchup and most of the games being decided by less than 3 runs. The Mets would take 2 of 3 at home, helped by mid-season acquisition Maury Wills and a superb 8.1 innings pitched by Gary Gentry. In familiar fashion, the O’s would take game 6 in Baltimore thanks in large part to young starter Wally Bunker and a pair of RBI’s by Paul Blair forcing a deciding game 7. Baltimore’s Dave McNally would struggle early giving up 5 runs, while Mets starter Tom Seaver would shine going 9 innings without a run scored.
