In his third major league start--and second for the Mets--Mark Bomback pitched a two-hit shutout against the eventual World Champion Phillies. It was the only shutout of Bomback's career.

Mike Schmidt had a leadoff single in the second for the Phils, and Garry Maddox had a leadoff single in the seventh. Bomback also walked six batters in the game.

Randy Lerch gave up just one run and four hits in seven innings but was tagged with the loss. Dan Norman had an RBI single in the fourth, and the second Mets run scored on a Larry Bowa error in the eighth.

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!
