In 1964 the New York Mets were the worst team in baseball. They lost 109 games that season.
But on this day in 1964, they beat the Cubs 19-1.
Bob Buhl gave up 4 runs in the first (he didn't survive the inning), and Don Elston gave up 6 runs in the ninth, and the Cubs hitters were shut down by Jack Fisher, who led the league in earned runs that year.
