On August 23, 1964 — Mets pitcher Willard Hunter picks up half his career wins (4) today as New York sweeps the Cubs, 2 – 1, in 10 innings, and 5 – 4 in the nitecap. No one has ever won a pair more efficiently as he totals 1 2/3 innings of work. Bob Buhl and Don Elston pick up losses. The Cubs lose Ernie Broglio, who woke up with a locked elbow and will need surgery to repair the ulnar lateral ligament damage in his elbow. He’ll be 1-6 in 1965.
