On this day in 1965, Eddie Mathews hit # 28 to lead the Braves to a win 4-3 at Pittsburgh.
Matthew’s home run gave the Matthews-Aaron duo (1954-66) a total of 772 home runs as teammates. They passed Ruth and Gehrig that day.
Aaron & Matthews ended up with 863 home runs in their 13 years together with the Braves. Matthews retired in 1968 and Aaron played until 1976.
Matthews came up with the Boston Braves but enjoyed his biggest years in Milwaukee. He led the National League with 47 home runs in 1953, the team’s first year in Milwaukee. Aaron came up in 1954 and hit 755 career home runs.
