Nolan Ryan improved to 6-1 as he struck out 16 Padres in the second game of a doubleheader at San Diego. It was the most batters Nolan would strike out while wearing a Mets uniform.

Ryan gave up a first inning unearned run and then clamped down on the Pods. Art Shamsky tied it in he fifth and had an RBI double in the seventh to drive in the winning run.

After the great 6-1 start, Ryan won just four more games the rest of the year and finished 10- 14. In 1972 he was wearing a California Angels uniform.

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!
