Watching on TV, this was one of the greatest comebacks I had ever seen. Seven in the ninth to pull out an 8-7 win.

I watched this one on TV too. I was 11 at the time. They were down 7-1. Millan walked to lead off the 9th, then Staub homered. Jones walked, then Milner homered. They scratched out 3 more, with Mays driving in 2. I remember how I danced with joy in front of the TV. Great memory!

I was 7 years old, going on 8 at the time. The neighbors were over the house having coffee. Mr. Schuster, a big Mets Fan, had given up on the game. I was watching it alone in the living room. At the end, I went to the kitchen to tell them that the Mets had won. No one believed me.

I was in the Bronx at the Yankee game this evening. A friend of mine invited me and we went with his dad and a couple of his other friends. The game was pretty humdrum, as the Yanks beat the Twins 4-1. The highlight for me was that we sat just above the broadcast booth and we got to see Phil Rizzuto. Anyway, as we were leaving the game, we heard over the car radio about the Mets' game and how they'd scored seven runs in the 9th, with Willie Mays driving in the winning run! As a long-time Willie fan (even before he was on the Mets), I was thrilled.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
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!
