This game was the latter half of a day-night doubleheader that concluded a very eventful day in Mets history. It started with the acquisition of Willie Mays, after which came Tom Seaver's 100th career win. Also, this nightcap was the last Mets loss before a team-record tying 11-game winning streak.

There was one item worthy of note from this game. Jim Beauchamp, who had worn uniform #24 over the first month of the season, donned #5 for the first time. Jim (understandably) had to change his number with Mays about to join the team.

One more event that occurred on this night was the Rangers losing the last game of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins. It was truly a day of highs and lows in New York sports.

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!
