After New York wins the first game 9-5 in San Francisco the Giants Ed Halicki records a somewhat controversial no-hitter in beating the Mets 6-0 in the 2nd game. The 6'7" righthander strikes out 10 Mets to improve his record to 8-10. Craig Swan takes the loss. The controversy arise when Rusty Staub hits a ball off Halecki's leg which caroms to the 2B Derrel Thomas who picks it then drops it. Official scorer Joe Sargis rules it an E-4. NY columnist Dick Young watching the game on TV writes that it should be a hit and accuses Sargis of subscribing to the theory that the first hit of a starter should be a 'good one.' The no-hitter stands but UPI's Sargis loses his job as a sometime scorer.
