Tom Seaver pitched another near-masterpiece this night at Connie Mack Stadium as he allowed just one hit, a third inning single to right by Phils' catcher Mike Compton, and struck out 15 batters.

An oddity in the game: in the top of the second, with one out and Ron Swoboda on first, Joe Foy hit a fly ball to center field, but Oscar Gamble dropped the ball. However, Swoboda went back to first thinking the ball was caught, and Foy passed him between first and second. Foy was called out and Swoboda returned to first.

One footnote on Compton: he was the Jimmy Qualls of 1970. Qualls, who broke up Seaver's perfecto on July 9, 1969, finished his major league career with 31 base hits. Compton finished his career with 18.

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.
