Box Score of the Week

Rusty Staub, who played 23 seasons in the big leagues, passed away last week at the age of 73.

With that in mind, let's look back at a significant game in his career. It was the first game of a doubleheader on June 26, 1983 when Staub's Mets hosted the Philadelphia Phillies.


In this game, pinch hitter extraordinaire Staub recorded his eighth consecutive pinch hit in the 1983 season. That tied a record for consecutive pinch hits in one season.
