Mays Leads Giants Past Mets, 5-3

Filed under New York Mets, San Francisco Giants
May 2, 1967

Willie Mays is attributed of saying that when he’s not contributing at the plate he can contribute on the field. Last night, Mays did both with a spectacular catch over the center field wall robbing Ed Kranepool of a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning. Mays then led off the ninth by beating out an infield single and coming around to score on Jim Ray Hart’s double to right center off Met starter Jack Fisher (1-2). Lindy McDaniel (2-1) was credited with the win with two innings in relief of Giant starter Gaylord Perry. Ken Boyer hit his first home run of the season for New York, and Willie McCovey belted his major-league leading tenth home run for the Giants.
