Happy Recap
April 19, 2001
This was the first game I ever attended at Shea. I was eight years old and really wanted to see Tom Seaver pitch. I had to settle for Gary Gentry, though. Gentry did a good job, nearly shutting out the Big Red Machine. My clearest memories of the game are seeing the 14 on Gil Hodges' back as he walked out to the mound (it was the only time I would ever see him in person) and a birthday greeting to Cleon Jones that flashed on the scoreboard.

I remember my father took me to the game, I was 12 years old. My only memory of the game was Pete Rose leading off the game with a triple and eventually scoring, it was the only run of the game. The next day we were at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and I remember seeing outside on a large board the previous days scores, and there it was: Cincinnati 1, Mets 0.

This was my first game I ever went to. I was 4 years old. We sat in the Mezz in left field. I don't remember much from this game, but I do remember how great it was to see a game in person. I only hope my son feels the same way when I take him to his first game this season.

The Mets were coming off a miserable July (9-20) and after this game they fell to 1-4 in August. On June 30 the Mets were 45-29 and in second place, just two games behind Pittsburgh. After this loss they were 55-53 and in fourth place, twelve games out of first.

Pete Rose drove in the only run of this game with an eighth inning double, and was thrown out at third trying to stretch it into a triple. Gary Gentry pitched a fine game, allowing just seven hits while walking two and striking out eleven. But Gary Nolan allowed just five hits over 8.2 innings and Clay Carroll came on to get the last out for the save. The Mets got only three runners as far as second base in the game.

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.
