Gary Matthews hit a foul ball into the stands to lead off the game and Jerry Grote made the catch, however a fan ripped the ball out of Grote's glove. Given a second chance, Matthews got a base hit and later scored the games only run.

Wow-- great job Greg--- After the Moises Alou play last week in Chicago I was telling friends that I once attended a game that I thought was vs SF where a fan took the ball from Grote, and the hitter later became the only runner to score vs Seaver.

As we left that afternoon, there was NO WAY we thought the Mets could make a pennant run.

My memory was right, but you made it easy for me to prove it!!!!

It was the second straight year I saw a 1-0 Mets/Giants game, as Buzz Capra had beaten Marichal in 1972, the day before Willie Mays made his Mets debut.

Yes, that was the game with the foul pop up in the first inning that was taken away from Grote. I remember it well. A tough loss.

I was eight years old at the game with by dad and my younger brother. I had been to two previous games the previous season, both Met losses. The jinx continued. I think Milner hit one deep to center in the ninth that almost tied it

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.
