METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 27, 1973 GAME:

Bob P
December 21, 2004
In the first game of a doubleheader, the Mets jumped on Phillies starter Barry Lersch with seven runs and nine hits in the bottom of the first inning. The Mets had eight singles and a double, with Ron Hodges and starter George Stone each driving in two runs.

The Mets had just four more hits the rest of the game while letting the Phils get back in it. The Phillies scored two in the second and then three more in the third on a three-run homer by Mike Anderson.

Philadelphia closed the gap to 7-6 with an unearned run in the top of the fifth, but that was all the scoring for the game. Buzz Capra came in to pitch the last four innings, allowing no hits and retiring twelve of the fourteen batters he faced (he walked the other two).

Teddy Martinez went 4-for-4 in the game for the Mets. Teddy had just two four-hit games in his Mets career, and both of them were in 1973, against the Phillies, and in the first game of a doubleheader! Teddy also had a four-hit game for the Dodgers in 1977.

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!
