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!

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!
