First game of a doubleheader, and the Mets come away with a 5-3 win. Jim Hickman led off the bottm of the first with a home run off Bob Purkey. The Reds tied it in the third on an RBI single by Pete Rose.

Ron Hunt's sac fly gave the Mets a 2-1 lead in the third, and in the fourth Joe Hicks drove in Duke Carmel who had doubled. The Mets added two more in the fifth off Joe Jay to take a 5-1 lead on a walk by Tim Harkness, a single by Ron Hunt, and a two-run triple by Duke Carmel.

Al Jackson gave up an RBI single to Gene Freese in the sixth and a pinch homer to Eddie Kasko in the top of the ninth and finished with a complete game win.

The Mets won the first game and it was too much to expect that they'd win a doubleheader. So after Pete Rose hit the first pitch of the second game for a home run, my friends and I moseyed down the left field line to stand above the Reds bullpen. The bullpen was, I believe, in the outfield, in fair territory, in the Polo Grounds. We leaned over the rail and begged for one of the Reds to throw us a baseball. They were in a bad mood and Joey Jay who had pitched that first game came out from under the overhang and started cursing us out. We began to tell him how badly he had pitched and before long it got kind of ugly. He had a pretty foul mouth and we 13 year olds weren't too nice either. Before long, one of the Reds came out from under the overhang to grab Joey and pull him back under. We persisted for a while but after a while we realized we weren't getting a free baseball or a reaction from Joey so we left and went back to watch the Mets split the doubleheader.

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!
