Stallard served up Roger Maris' 61st homer and was on the mound when the Mets set a modern record for road losses by dropping their 20th straight away from the Polo Grounds. But the 25-year-old right-hander, the winner when the Mets last won on the road June 15, may never have been sharper than on Tuesday. He allowed only two runners beyond second base in sending the front-runners down to their seventh defeat in 10 games. The victory left the Mets tied in the record book with the Pittsburgh team of 1890 at 22 road losses.
