1973 NLCS Game 5 Notes

August 6, 2019

Recently Ed Kranepool and Cleon Jones were honored as part of the great 1969 World title winning, New York Mets’ 50 year anniversary celebration.

Four years later, each man delivered big hits, in Jones’ case, three, in the Mets’ (7-2) win vs the defending N.L. champion, Cincinnati Reds, in the decisive 5th game of the 1973 NLCS.

Tom Seaver with 9th inning help from Frank “Tug” McGraw was the winning pitcher.


Tug McGraw, pictured above, also got the last out when the Philadelphia Phillies won their first World Series in 1980.
