  • Dennis Bennett, former Mets pitcher, passes away

    Former Major League Baseball pitcher Dennis Bennett, 72, died overnight Friday at his home in Klamath Falls. Bennett had been in poor health and was hospitalized the last two months before returning home Thursday.

    He pitched for Philadelphia, Boston, the New York Mets and Los Angeles Angels in his career, and pitched 28 complete games and six shutouts. He is listed among the several opening-day pitchers for the Phillies. He threw and batted left-handed, and he and his brother Dave pitched in the same game once during the 1964 Philadelphia season.

    I was looking up this guy's stats against the Mets and he always had great success against them. In 1962, he threw 21.1 innings against the team and posted a 1.69 ERA (despite posting a 3.81 ERA on the season overall). On August 28, he tossed a complete game while allowing only one run. In 1963, he pitched 16.2 innings against the squad, posting a 2.16 ERA. On August 9, he tossed a five-hit shutout against Galen Cisco and the rest of the Mets. Too bad he didn't pitch that well against other teams when he was in a Mets uniform, ha.

      With all due respect to Mr. Bennett it was easier pitching to the Mets than for the Mets.
