This broke the previous Met record for runs scored at Shea in a game which had been 14 on more than one occasion.

This was one fun game to watch, which I did from the field level seats near the Mets' dugout. Darryl Strawberry's first inning grand slam off Steve Bedrosian on a 2-2 pitch from Steve Bedrosian set the tone for a 16-4 win. Darryl also hit a 3-run homer to center field. I remember Dale Murphy's glove falling off his hand as he reached for the ball!

Howard Johnson, Danny Heep and Clint Hurdle contributed four-baggers, too. Five home runs in one game, all by left-handed hitters!

Because of the lopsided score, Dave Johnson put Doug Sisk in to replace Dwight Gooden in the seventh inning. He pitched the final three innings, which was nice to see after the problems he had been experiencing. For about a year, his pitching declined, he lost his job as the righty closer and he was booed by fans. Even though he allowed three runs, it was good to see him finish a game again.

Mets also won the next day 15-10 which was the first time they had scored over 30 runs in two consecutive games.

This game was the first in Mets history in which the team hit all four kinds of home runs. Darryl Strawberry led the way with both a grand slam and a three-run blast, Hojo provided a two-run shot and Danny Heep contributed a solo clout. This cycle of homers was already completed in the fourth inning! Clint Hurdle (who entered later) added another solo homer in the seventh. Also, each member of the Mets’ starting lineup had at least one hit for a game total of eighteen. One of the most productive games the team has ever had.

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.
