First game of a disastrous doubleheader in St. Louis. The Mets came into this game in last place, seven and a half games behind the first palce Cardinals, and nine games under .500.

Bob Gibson pitched a complete game for his eleventh win of the season, and helped himself with a fifth inning grand slam which turned a 6-1 game into a 10-1 game.

The Mets actually led 1-0 in the second inning thanks to a Lou Brock three-base error and an Ed Kranepool sac fly. But the Cards were unstoppable after that.

The Mets also lost game two with the key hit being an eighth inning home run by Joe Torre, and when the evening ended the last place Mets were 42-53, and 9.5 games out of first place.

The Mets went 40-26 the rest of the way--still not a blistering pace--while the Cards went 28-36.

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.
