This was the first game I ever attended in my life. I haven't been able to find it in all these years. Too bad you can't get the boxscore. I remember it was just before I turned 8 years old and it was on a Friday night at home against the Expos. I remember going with my uncle and three of his friends. I remembered the game being something like 10-9 Montreal. Oh well, 9-7. The Mets had men on base in the bottom of the 9th. It was quite exciting. Thanks for your great site!!

Frank, the boxscore and play-by-play are available on retrosheet.org. Please e-mail me if you need more information.

As for the game, Ken Singleton gave the Mets an early lead but Coco Laboy was a one-man show for the Expos. Laboy drove in 4 runs in the first 5 innings with two doubles and a single, and Montreal led 6-1 going to the bottom of the 5th. The teams traded single runs over the next few innings and it was 7-3 Expos going to the bottom of the eighth.

RBI singles by Wayne Garrett and Jerry Grote followed by an infield out by Joe Foy made it a 7- 6 game but Tommie Agee flied out with the tying run at third and two outs in the eighth.

The Expos added two runs in the top of the ninth on a squeeze bunt and a bases loaded walk and they led 9-6 in the bottom of the ninth. But the Mets loaded the bases with no one out in the ninth for Donn Clendenon and it looked like they could do some damage. Unfortunately, Donn grounded into a 6-4-3 DP and then Wayne Garrett was called out on strikes, and the Expos had a 9- 7 win.

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.

Thank you!
