On September 1, 1969 — Willie Davis‚ who cracks a single and double‚ ties the franchise record of hitting in 29 straight games. The mark was set by Zack Wheat in 1916‚ and Davis will double one day later to break it. Andy Kosco adds 4 straight hits as the Dodgers beat the visiting Mets‚ 10 – 6. Jerry Koosman is k.o.’ed after a third of an inning and takes the loss against Jim Bunning.
