It was a Friday night and Aaron and Mays were tied for 2nd in homers at that time. There was a lot of anticipation that one (or both) of them would hit one out that night. Not to be. The Mets were horrible. The only saving grace was Milner hitting a homer in the 9th to break the shutout. It was also the first time I saw the Braves candy-ass blue uniforms. Too bad it wasn't the last.

As Kevin McLaughlin said in March of 2002, Henry Aaron and Willie Mays were both in the starting lineup this night, and they were tied for second place in career home runs behind Babe Ruth with 648.

Neither man added to his total this night. Aaron struck out twice, grounded out, and fouled out. Mays struck out, flied out, popped out, and walked as the Braves won behind Phil Niekro.

Rico Carty hit a two-out, three-run homer in the sixth off Gary Gentry to break a scoreless tie. Felix Millan and Ralph Garr drove in runs in the seventh, and Darrell Evans homered in the eighth off Ron Taylor to give the Braves a 6-0 lead. The only Mets run came on a ninth inning homer by John Milner, who had all three of the hits allowed by Niekro.

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!
