Gary Gentry became the second pitcher in Mets history to win his first two major league starts. The Mets rallied for three runs in the top of the eighth to break a 3-3 tie as Gentry was removed for pinch-hitter Ed Kranepool.

Bud Harrelson had singled in the go-ahead run with the bases loaded and two outs, then Kranepool delivered a double to score two more.

Cal Koonce retired the last six Philles without the ball leaving the infield.

Until Mike Pelfrey started his major league career with two wins in his first two starts in July 2006, this was the last time any Mets pitcher had accomplished that feat.

This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
