In 1969, “Tom Seaver”:http://www.baseball-reference.com/s/seaveto01.shtml was perfect for 8 1/3 innings until Chicago’s “Jimmy Qualls”:http://www.baseball-reference.com/q/quallji01.shtml singled. The Mets beat the Cubs, 4-0, that night at Shea Stadium.
Six years later, in Atlanta, Seaver pitched 10 innings to beat the Braves, 2-1, with “Rusty Staub”:http://www.baseball-reference.com/s/staubru01.shtml winning it with a homer.

“BOXSCORE v. ATLANTA”:http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/ATL/ATL197507090.shtml
Who remembers the Qualls’ game? Anybody at that game? Seaver had so many great games. There’s plenty of time at the All-Star break to go over them.
