WEB GEMS- Top 8th: Barry Bonnell robbed Jerry Koosman of a Homerun!
 
Butch Hobson hit a homerun and had 3 RBI and Jerry Koosman delivered 9 solid
innings as the Boston Mets defeated the Atlanta Athletics by the score of 6
to 1 at Oakland Coliseum.
 
Boston drew first blood jumping out to an early lead in the first inning
plating an isolated run using 2 hits.  Boston finished with 12 hits in the
victory.  
 
The victory went to Koosman(6-1) who went the distance allowing 1 run. Vida
Blue(1-6) absorbed the loss.  He pitched 6 innings allowing 6 hits and 3
walks.
 
'Koosman pitched a gem of a game', HAL recounted.  'He kept our batters off
balance the entire game.'
