METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 21, 1976 GAME:

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.

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!
