Fantastic pitching duel between Seaver and Blass. I believe it was 1-1 going into the ninth, Pirates scored in top of the inning. Mets tied it and had Al Weis their fastest runner on third. A deep fly was hit to Clemente in right. He made an unreal throw on the fly to the plate that Weis barely beat. It shouldn't have even been close but he had a terrific arm. He also had a very slow walk. It took him about 5 minutes to reach the dugout.

It was 1-1 going to the ninth; Tom Seaver vs Steve Blass. Seaver gave up only two hits over the first eight innings, and both of them came in the fifth when Willie Stargell doubled and Gene Alley singled him home.

But Tom gave up three singles in the ninth and the Pirates took a 2-1 lead. In the bottom of the ninth, Ken Singleton led off with a hit and Art Shamsky followed with another, and the Mets had runners at the corners with nobody out. Al Weis pinch-ran for Shamsky, and Dave Marshall singled to tie the game, then veteran lefty Joe Gibbon came in and hit Ken Boswell to load the bases. After Cleon Jones pinch-hit and made an out, Donn Clendenon batted for Jerry Grote and hit a sac fly off Orlando Pena for the 3-2 win as described by Rich Edwards above.

Ken Boswell was on base four times in the game with two singles, a walk, and a hit by pitch.

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.
