On September 13, 1963 — On Friday the 13th, hard luck hurler Roger Craig, en route to his 21st loss of the season, allows the lone run of the game to score after getting the first two outs in the ninth inning in the Mets’ 1-0 loss to Houston at the Polo Grounds. The defeat marks the fifth time the New York right-hander has dropped a 1-0 decision this season.
