Rd3-Game 4: “All’s well that Card’s-well”

Ellis vs Cardwell
Mets 4, Pirates 0

Revenge is a dish best served cold.  And cold is just the way to describe the Pirate batsDon_Cardwell-1968z when former Buc Don Cardwell took the hill today vs his old mates.  Cardwell like so many others felt like he was banished to baseball's black hole of Calcutta when he was dealt to the lowly Mets.  Tossing 7 1/3 shutout innings vs his old mates was a huge boost to his ego and a huge confidence builder for the Amazin's who avoided going down 3-1 in the series.  Cardwell nursed a 1 run lead that Ken Boswell's RBI single in the 4th registered.  In the 6th the Mets' bats bumped that lead to 4-0.  RBI doubles by the Glider and Art Shamsky were followed by a Stahl sac fly.  Cal Koonce got the final 5 outs.  Shamsky was a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate, which included 2 doubles.
Series tied 2-2
