I don't remember too much about this game as at this time of the year I was in sleepaway camp. There were no TV's allowed in the bunks at camp nor could we watch tv anywhere in camp, so I always had to go 7 weeks/49 days where I couldn't see the Mets on TV when I was attending camp. My bunk counselors sometimes would have the games on the radio until campers had to be in bed by 9:00pm, so I couldn't always know the result until the next morning.

The Mets did win this game to stay right with the Cubs in the NL East as they went into August for the first time since 1973 with being able to have thoughts of maybe making the playoffs after being nowhere close to the postseason for many years before this. And the Mets gave me a nice birthday present with the win as I celebrated my mitzvah of becoming a man on this day as it was my 13th birthday.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

Example One
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!
