METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 7, 1970 GAME:Bob P
August 8, 2004
The Mets swept the Expos in this Labor Day doubleheader while the Pirates split their doubleheader with the Cubs. So the Mets closed to within 1.5 games of first place.
In game one, the Mets were behind 4-0 going to the bottom of the seventh. But they scored two in the seventh and three more in the eighth. The winning run came on a Jerry Grote single a few batters after Cleon Jones had tied it with a two- run homer.
In game two, the Mets put up a five-spot in the bottom of the second on a three-run homer by Tommie Agee and a two-RBI double by Donn Clendenon. Jim McAndrew coasted to his ninth win of the year, allowing just six hits in the complete game victory.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
