Tom Seaver won his eleventh straight decision for the Reds, retiring 18 batters in a row between the second and eighth innings. Tom also had a single and a double and drove in two runs.

Ed Kranepool had two singles off his long-time teammate.

This was my first Mets game ever attended. My older brother took me, and I was amazed how big Shea Stadium looked (especially with all the empty seats). I still have 4 pictures I took with a 110 camera. It is great to see the old green walls. I have a picture of John Stearns throwing a ball in from left field (which was one of the positions he played a few times that season), and of of the Reds congratulating Tom Seaver following the complete game shutout.

For years, I was trying to find out the exact date of this game. I knew it was in '78 or '79. I finally found it by looking on this web site.

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.
