Ed Lynch would toss a 6 hit shutout at Shea today. It is just another shutout in the early portion of the season. He would have pinpoint control as he would walk no one and strikeout 3. Tom Browning would struggle to get key outs and would give up 7 hits and 3 walks.
In the 5th Wilson would hit a 3 run HR, a Carter double and Chapman would score. Strawberry would bounce into a 4-6 FC and that would score Carter.
In the 8th Foster would hit a solo HR off of Power and it is now 6-0.
There have been many well pitched games and Lynchs will not stand out as anything but the sunshines on everyone once in a while.
The Final Score 6-0 Mets
