Other than being a run-of-the-mill regular season game won by the Mets 6-4, two interesting events occurred. Dave Marshall basically won the game in bottom of 7th with a pinch-hit 3-run home run to put Mets ahead to stay. But far more interesting was the great cover photograph of the 1971 Mets Yearbook of Manny Mota sliding into Jerry Grote...this occurred in this game during an action-packed Dodger 6th inning...Mota was attempting an inside-the-park homer on an RBI triple to right when Swoboda hit Garrett (playing 2B that day) on cut-off, who threw home to nail Mota at the plate.

Two interesting events occured in this game. First, in the top of the 6th Inning, the Dodgers had a busy offensive inning, highlighted by a great play at the plate. After Grabarkewitz led off with a double, Manny Mota had an RBI triple to right and attempted an inside-the-park homer...Wayne Garrett (playing 2B that day) made a relay to Grote the plate and nailed Mota. A photographer captured this play at the plate, and the photo became the shot we all know that is the cover of the 1971 Mets yearbook. That cover occurred in this game. The second event of interest is Dave Marshall-- who hit for Frisella in the 7th-- hitting a pinch- hit 3-run homer which put the Mets ahead to stay.

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.
