The Mets stood 4 and 1/2 games in front of the cubs in the n.l. east after this win but would lose 13 of their next 16 games, including 7 losses to Chicago, a stretch which probably decided the division title. Another odd Mets giveaway night too, USA cap night, after all it was an Olympic year.

I listened to this game on WHN, and it was probably the first "big" game the franchise played in 11 years. Doc was brilliant for a rookie in a high-pressure start. I remember Mookie throwing out a Cubbie trying to score, and Murph had one of his best calls of his life. After he yelled the runner was out, he said nothing for about 5 seconds while Shea went nuts. Then he said "this place just exploded".

I was 18 and during batting practice my dad and I almost got beaned with a Leon Durham foul ball while we had a lapful of food.

Great game pitched by Doc and the entire crowd left the game yelling, We're # 1-"hoot".

Unfortunately, things went awry the next day with the Sisk fiasco and our lead vanished when we went to Chicago. That night there was definitely a fever in the air and it felt good for the first time in a long time as a Met fan with good things to come at the time.

After this game, I, along with many other Mets fans, thought the Mets were playoff bound. We're a silly breed, us Met fans!

The biggest Mets game since the mid 70's. I believe it was a nationally televised game (NBC?). I remember the excitement of a jam packed Shea and Gooden being sensational.

I was at this game with a group from my summer job and my college roommate. We sat in the left field nosebleed upper deck. It was the first time in maybe 11 years I left a Mets game being proud to be one of their fans. People were leaving the stadium yelling "We are number 1!!" However the Mets fell apart even after getting Ray Knight a month later. Regardless, it was great to be a fan on that night!!

To John L.---The game was on SportsChannel and my part of New Jersey didn't have cable yet so I had to listen to it on the late great 1050 WHN. Plus it was a unusually cool, dreary July evening as I tend to recall but they got the game in anyway!

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.
