Dwight at his most dominating best! As I recall, in the 6th inning, Gullickson threw at Carter's head, sorta like payback for leaving the Expos. In the bottom of the 6th, Gullickson leads off, Gooden throws the 1st pitch dead on at Gullickson's head, sending him to the dirt. The ump issues warnings to both benches, then what does Doc do? K's Gullickson on the next three pitches, and then proceeds to K Raines and Law with the next 6 pitches. the most awsome inning of pitching I had ever witnessed! Ten pitches, and he strikes out the side! We will never see an arm like that in its prime ever again.

My first trip to a live baseball game was this game. (At the time I had recently turned eight years old.) Sat in the upper deck, nevertheless, I was happier than a pig in, uh, excrement. Doc was my favorite player and I was actually happy to see the ex-Met Hubie Brooks. At the start of the game I tried to boo the Canadian national anthem, but my dad quickly told me I shouldn't ever do that. I really had nothing against Canada at the time, I was just a pretty obnoxious fan for my age. One by one Doc struck out ten Expos, about 41,000 people there were nuts just about the whole night.

Oddly enough this was also the night I first tasted a beer. Some fat old guy sitting in the row above me accidentally spilled a tray of several beers right on top of me, enough so that I got a pretty decent sized gulp of the liquid. At first I thought it was some type of rotten ginger ale (remember I was only 8.)

A took a whole decade after that before I finally starting enjoying "rotten ginger ale" for real.

Further to an earlier post on this game:

Doc struck out ten. He struck out the side in the top of the first (Raines, Law, Dawson), and in the top of the fifth (Winningham, Fitzgerald, Gullickson).

Gullickson had two at bats in the game and made the last out of the inning both times.

Both Mets runs were driven in by George Foster with two-out singles in the sixth and the eighth.

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.
