August 17, 1977: Bob Forsch Two Hits The Mets at Busch

On August 17, 1977, Bob Forsch fired a two-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Mets at Busch. The only hits the Mets could scratch out were a couple of singles, after Bruce Boisclair singled into left in the first inning Forsch set down 15 in a row before Lenny Randle singled in the sixth. The Redbird runs came in the bottom of the sixth, both Hector Cruz and Mike Tyson picked up an rbi apiece to give the team the 2-0 lead. Forsch was in cruise control mode, his breaking ball was devastating and his fastball was on fire. By the end of the day Forsch faced just 30 batters, he gave up a walk in the first and another in the seventh while striking out five men in the gem that put the Redbirds in the win column.

Here's the box score:
