I am 38, and this was the first ballgame I ever attended. Tommie Agee hit a walk off homer if I remember correctly.

Tony, you are correct! Agee's two-out homer in the bottom of the tenth after Bud Harrelson reached on an error gave the Mets an 8-6 win in this game.

The Mets were down 6-0 going to the bottom of the eighth but they scored five in that inning and one more in the ninth before Agee won it in extra innings. The Padres made six errors in the game, including four over the last three innings when the Mets scored all eight of their runs.

San Diego OF Johnny Jeter had two homers 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.

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!
