Round 3: Mets vs Pirates–GAME 1 “Bucs Blank Amazin’s”

GAME 1 - Forbes Field
Seaver vs Ellis
Pirates 1, Mets 0

Dock_Ellis-1968eMaury Wills tripled with one out in the bottom of the 5th, then scored on a sac fly to left by Matty Alou.  When all the dust cleared that would be the game's lone tally.  Dock Ellis allowed just 4 hits and nary a run in 7 innings.  Ron Kline was perfect in 2 innings of relief to gain his 6th save of the tournament.  Tom Seaver, who went 8 and gave up just 1 run, was the hard luck loser.  Tom Terrific fanned 7, but did not get any run support.  The Bucs draw first blood in this best of 7 “Final 4” series.
Pirates lead series 1-0
