William Hayward (Mookie) Wilson goes 3 for 5, scoring three times leading the first-place NY Mets to a 7-1 win over the LA Dodgers.
The Mets go on to win the NL East by a whopping 15 games in 1988. However, the Dodgers avenge this loss by defeating the Mets 4 games to 3 in the National League Championship series.
Mookie led the Gamecocks in batting in 1977, hitting .357. USC was the runner-up at the College World Series that year, losing to Arizona State.
Wilson played at USC in 1976 and 1977.
