This is the only time I ever saw Tom Seaver win a Mets game in person, and it was via an emergency situation.

If memory serves correct, Jon Matlack was to originally start this game. Unfortunately, Jon was involved in a slight automobile accident and was scratched. Here comes Seaver like the 7th Cavalry to shut the Expos out. He was very much in control of the entire game. (Ironically, I never saw Matlack pitch in person; this was as close as I would come.)

The other highlight that stands out is that Dave Kingman laid down a surprise bunt single. I want to say that it was with two out and two strikes on him, but that may be a little much. I will say that no one expected it.

I went with my fellow Little Leaguers to this afternoon affair. What fun!

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!
