After driving in the winning run in the Mets’ 7-4 victory over the Cubs, Joel Youngblood, who is traded to the Expos during the game, flies to Philadelphia and singles for Montreal to become the first player to have a hit for two different teams on the same day in different cities. The 30-year All-Star collects his two historic hits off two future Hall of Famers, a single off Ferguson Jenkins in Chicago, and a single off Steve Carlton of the Phillies.
