This was a fantastic game!!! Me and my boys from Harlem went to this one; it was a hot August night game...and (here's the best part!) WE BEAT THE GREAT JUAN MARICHAL ON A 14TH INNING HOMERUN BY TOMMIE AGEE!!! That's right--Juan Marichal pitched ALL 14 INNINGS for the Giants!!! He had excellent stuff that night, as he struck out a slew of Mets. He had either some kind of sinker or other breaking pitch going that night--because I remember the Mets swinging and missing on a lot of pitches that ended up being caught low by the catcher.

But that '69 team was a team of destiny, y'all...and Mr. Agee took care of "the whole ball of wax" with one swing in the bottom of the 14th!!!

Cleon leaped over the fence to take a homer away from McCovey to set up Agee's blast in the 14th to win the game for the Mets.

Due to a series of strange circumstances I wound up with six mezzanine box seat tickets to this game in back of home plate. We invited my grandfather, a pure Met fan, but he didn't want to go because Marichal was pitching and he knew the Mets would lose. My uncle convinced him to go anyway. As Charles above described it he seems to have a pretty good memory about the game. There were some gentlemen sitting a few rows in front of us who were passing $20 and $50 bills back and forth all night betting on every pitch Marichal threw. Gentry and McGraw stopped the Giants. Cleon did leap over the fence, but he also didn't quite catch the ball, but he managed to get his glove under the ball after he stopped it over his head, he caught the ball while he and the ball were coming down in a four man McCovey outfield! Of course Agee hit the home run off starter Marichal in the 14th! Lucky for us fans that night the Met pitchers went 14 innings without allowing a run. All the Met fans went home happy the following morning (1 a.m. or so), especially my grandfather.

At the time I was a Giants/Mets fan and Marichal was my absolute hero. We sat near the third base bag and were treated to a gem as Gentry and Dandy hooked up.

I think Marichal struck out the side in the 12th inning and looked like he could go all night if need be before Agee caught up with one for a game ending blast.

You'll never see a pitcher go 13 innings any more, this I promise you!

This was the first Met game I ever went to. It was my 6th birthdady and we stayed for the entire game!!!

Amazing game -- even more so in this day and age.

As with almost all Shea games in the 60's, I was sitting in the Mezz level down the 3rd base line. Had even worse seats that year for Seaver's imperfect game. What a year!

Marichal's (or Gentry's!) double-digit innings perrformance could never happen in the current era.

Extra comment (I posted above) -- Thanks to ultimateMets.com new Walkoff Wins and Losses I now know that the home run by Agee was the first home run in Mets history to produce a 1-0 walkoff victory.

I remember sitting in the upper deck on the first base side. We couldn't believe Marichal kept coming out to pitch inning after inning. The 10th, 11th and so on. Strange, I remember having on a yellow windbreaker and being chilly up there. Wonder if it was windy since it was in usually hot August?

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
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.
