First game of a twi-nighter at Shea, and John Milner goes 5-for-5, the only five-hit game of his career.

Milner had a two-run homer, a double, and three singles as the Mets, down 2-1 in the seventh, won the game 8-2. Jon Matlack was the winner despite giving up twelve hits in seven innings.

Milner also homered in the first inning of game two, but the Mets gave up three in the eighth as the Cards tied the game, then the Cards scored five in the thirteenth inning to gain a split of the doubleheader.

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!
