Houston sweeps a pair from the Mets at the Polo Grounds, 7-2 and 5-4. Bob Aspromonte's league- record 57-game errorless streak is snapped in the opener but he responds with a 5-for-6 performance in the nightcap. Jim Golden wins the lidlifter and drives in three to help himself. Hal Smith is the hero of the nightcap with a two- run homer in the seventh, a key double in the ninth, and the game-winning single in the twelfth. New York sets a major league mark for home losses with their 57th defeat at Coogan's Bluff.

Mets finished the season two games short of a fill 162 game schedule. In order to make up prior rainouts, they would have needed to play Houston three straight doubleheaders at the Polo Grounds in September to complete the full schedule but the middle date (September 19th) was rained out. Considering that they had lost the doubleheader the day before the rainout, and then lost this doubleheader on the day after the rainout, it was probably just as well.

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!
