1998: Mark McGwire homers off Bobby Jones in an 8-3 Mets win. The home run tops Hack Wilson’s 1930 National League record of 46 home runs hit before September 1. In McGwire’s 162 games with the Cardinals since a trade with Oakland on July 31, 1997, McGwire has a .275 batting average with 71 home runs and 146 runs batted in with 165 walks.
