I am the only one in the world that remembers this game. Terry Leach could not throw a strike for the life of him. The worst game probably of his career. His 10 inning 1-hitter later in the year redeemed him.

I can't say I do remember the game, but thanks to retrosheet, I see that the Mets scored 4 in the 6th to take a 5-3 lead then the wheels fell off.

Here is the top of the seventh:

Scott pitching. Sandberg singled, Bowa popped to short, Buckner walked, Orosco replaced Scott. Durham singled to drive in a run, runners moved up on error by Foster. Morales intentionally walked. Leach replaced Orosco. Davis walked to force in a run. Steve Henderson (yes, that Steve Henderson)singled to drive in two more, Kennedy flied out to right. Wills walked, Sandberg singled to drive in two more, Bowa walked. Falcone replaced Leach, Buckner singled to drive in two and then was caught stealing or the Cubs might still be batting now.

So Leach faced 6 batters: walk, single, out, walk, single, walk.

After the game the Mets had a one game lead over the Cubs in the battle for fifth place.

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!
