This Mets win combined with a 4-3 loss by the Cubs in Philadelphia (the eighth straight loss for the Durochermen) gave the Mets a two-game lead with twenty games remaining.

Gary Gentry pitched a six-hit shutout (all singles), walking two and striking out nine.

Tommie Agee scored the first run on a passed ball by Expos' catcher John Batemen. A Ken Boswell double knocked in Cleon Jones to give the Mets a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning, and the Mets missed an opportunity to blow the game open as they loaded the bases with nobody out but couldn't get anyone else home.

Art Shamsky had an RBI single in the sixth, and Rod Gaspar drove in a run in the eighth with a single.

There is one special memory of this game for me anyway, and I did not realize it until 1998, when my mother was moving from Uniondale to East Meadow. She came across these tickets and it was from Sept. 11th, which is irony in itself, but it was the first game that my father ever took me to, and I was just 4 years old. On the back of the ticket, it said "Ange's ist game with Carmine" [my dad]. It got me choked up. (It is so awesome to see the game summary on this site, to know this game was an indeed a reality. Before Shea goes this year I'm going to sit in those seats, and even though dad is not with us anymore, it'll still be special.

Example One
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.

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.
