METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 1983 GAME:flushing flash
February 7, 2002
Jose DeLeon almost threw a no-hitter against us. He was absolutely awesome. It's hard to believe that two years later he went 2-19. Mookie won this game in the bottom of the 12th inning in true fabulous Mookinian fashion: HE SCORED FROM SECOND ON A GROUNDOUT! Jesse Orosco won both games of this doubleheader to cap an incredible month for him. And can you believe Mike Torrez went eleven innings? A great game all around.

It was after this doubleheader that it became apparent that the first dark ages were drawing to a close. The first game the Mets go down 4-0 in the first after Jason Thompson hits a grand slam. They stay in it, chipping away, Darryl hits a HR and I believe Keith does as well and they win 7-6. The second game ends as above with Mookie never breaking stride and scoring in the bottom of the 12 from second on a groundout.
The times they were a changin'.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
