The better of the two Bob Millers on the team was the Met's fourth starter in the rotation and didn't win a game until this one which was his final start of the season in the Mets next to last game that year.

As Ed K says above, Bob Miller was the winner in this game for his only win and first complete game of the season in 21 starts. The win breaks a personal 12-game losing streak for Miller and he finishes the year 1-12.

The Cubs' only run came on a homer by Ernie Banks. Dick Ellsworth was the losing pitcher, his 20th loss of the year. Ellsworth bounced back to win 22 games in 1963.

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!
