This was a great and memorable game(s)...because it was the 20th win for Dwight Gooden, I believe he was the youngest to achieve that, and it capped a doubleheader sweep by the Mets over the Padres...a mistake on this listing. Strawberry had a huge series, homering and also hitting a shot to dead center field which froze Padre center fielder, Kevin McReynolds. Electricity, the wave, what a day!

This was Doc's 20th win in '85. That gave him the record for the youngest pitcher ever to win 20 games. He beat Bob Feller by a month.

Correction to an earlier post: this was a Sunday afternoon game at Shea, not a doubleheader. These teams had played a twi-nighter two nights earlier (Friday night) that the Padres swept.

Doc won his 20th but lasted only six innings, striking out just four Padres. Strawberry had a terrific day: he had an RBI double and later scored in the first, he walked in the third, homered in the fifth, walked intentionally and scored in the seventh, and had an RBI single in the eighth.

This was the first baseball game I ever attended. I was four years old. I still remember bits and pieces of it. Any time something seemed to happen, I asked my father whether it had been good for the Mets. I remember my father pointing out Howard Johnson and telling me they called him "HoJo".

I was at this game on a cloudy, rainy Sunday at Shea. The weather was no problem as the Mets whipped the Padres. Dwight Gooden pitched superbly and became the youngest 20-game winner ever. Darryl Strawberry hit a home run to center field and Roger McDowell finished up for a save. McDowell also doubled down the left field line to drive in a run.

Gooden’s feat was displayed on the message board right after the game. The fans called for Dwight and he came out of the dugout, already dressed in street clothes, to acknowledge them.

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.
