If I remember correctly, Hebner hit a game winning walk off home run. Listened to it on the radio. Great call by Murph!

Richie Hebner hit a big home run in the bottom of the 10th inning of this game. It was a 3-run bomb into the Mets' bullpen in right field that retied the game after the Cardinals had scored three in the top of the inning. The Mets then scored in the 11th and won.

My sister and I were watching and she switched channels after the Cards scored their three runs. I continued to watch in another room. When Hebner came up with two runners on, I told my sister and she switched back to the game. We saw the homer and the game-winning run without any more channel changing!

This game is a good example of Yogi Berra's quote "It's not over until it's over."

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

Example One
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!
