METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 3, 1985 GAME:Joe Lanzisera
June 30, 2003
Just another random game that I happen to remember well. Mets led 3-2 into the bottom of the 8th behind Darling. The Cubs came back and took the lead 4-3.
The Mets came into the 9th against Lee Smith who was as close to unhittable as there was at that time. The Pennant race was heating up and the Mets needed the game. As I remember it was a Saturday Afternoon Game of the Week on NBC.
Hernandez got the key hit in the 9th a run-scoring double down the right-field line to score Backman and tie the game. Then in the 10th after coming in on the double-switch, HoJo blasted one out to rightfield. Mets win!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
