Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Mets
|It was a beautiful fall day for the afternoon game which took two hours & forty minutes to play. The winning club would earn $14,000 & the losers would earn about $6000.|
The Mets had to play without their main RBI man; Rusty Staub. Staub had injured his shoulder crashing into the outfield wall making a spectacular catch in Game #4. Eddie Kranepool was in the line up playing in left field & Cleon Jones moved over to right.
