I remember this game at Chicago-- Walt Terrell, that's right, Walt Terrell hitting 2 homers against the Cubs. I think he hit one the other way.

Right you are, Brian. I was there, too, with my dad. It was the NBC game of the week and Terrell launched two homers to left-center field. But more than that, the Mets swept this three-game series and it was also Jesse Orosco's coming out party as one of the game's best closers. In this series and for the rest of the year, he pitched like a man possessed - a little foreshadowing of 1986.

I remember watching this game on TV. The story, of course, was Terrell's 2 homers. The thing that surprises me, in looking st the boxscore, is that Hernandez and Strawberry played in the game. I realize that they both came to the Mets in '83, but this game seemed to be before their era, in my mind.
