METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 21, 1976 GAME:rht
August 7, 2007
I watched this game on TV. I remember this game because the Mets spoiled the single-handed heroics of one Andre Thornton, who had just been acquired from the Cubs.
In the first inning, with Pepe Mangual on first running on the pitch, Andre hits a two-run home run exuding cheers from the fans at Jarry Park! In the seventh inning, Wayne Garrett ties the game with a two-run homer of his own. However, Andre comes through with a clutch RBI single in the bottom of the inning to put Montreal ahead again. Then, in the top of the ninth just as things were looking bleak, Wayne comes through with a clutch two-run double putting the Mets up for good!
I don't remember the bottom of the ninth, but it appears that Andre had one last chance at heroics with two outs, but didn't come through.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
