July 2, 1965: Gibby Takes Care Of Business
On July 2, 1965, Bob Gibson scattered seven hits and struck out 13 in a 6-3 win over the Mets at Shea Stadium. While it wasn't the best day on the hill for the Cardinals ace he battled his way through it to nail down his tenth win of the season with a complete game victory. Gibson would go onto win 20 games and he set down 270 men via the strikeout during the '65 campaign.
