I was at this game and was 12 years old at the time. We sat in the last row in the corner of the left field bleachers. The stadium was packed. I clearly remember Ed Kranepool pinch hitting in the late innings and driving one that the centerfielder caught with his back against the wall. It was painful to watch the Mets lose another big game. If I recall correctly, the only Met run scored on a double play. Still, it was great to be at the game.

Pete, great memory!! The Mets were 2.5 games out with 12 games remaining when this game started. The Pirates jumped out to an early 2-0 lead when Roberto Clemente doubled home a run with two outs in the third and Willie Stargell followed with a single to drive in Clemente.

The Mets did indeed score their only run on a DP. They loaded the bases in the sixth with no one out on a single by Clendenon and walks given up by Luke Walker to Swoboda and Foy. John Lamb came in the game and got Jerrt Grote to ground into a 6-4-3 the n Bud Harrelson flied out.

Ed Kranepool came up as a pinch hitter leading off the bottom of the ninth and flied out to center. Tommie Agee followed with a single, but veteran Joe Gibbon came in the game and got pinch hitter Leroy Stanton--in his third major league at bat--to ground into the game-ending double play.

The teams split a doubleheader the next day and that meant the Mets were 3.5 games out (4 in the loss column) with just nine games left. The Mets were still alive because they were going to Pittsburgh the next weekend. But the Pirates swept them, winning three one-run games.

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!
