METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 29, 1986 GAME:Joel
September 4, 2003
As a huge Dodger fan I went to this game against my better judgment. LA took an early lead with a Mike Marshall homer off of Sid Fernandez, however George Foster (who always hit LA well) hit a three run HR off of Valenzuela and that was it. I never went to another LA - Mets game since then as I bring bad luck to the Dodgers).

Joel, I was also at this game--but I wasn't rooting for the Dodgers!
It was actually a solo HR by Foster leading off the 2nd that gave the Mets an early 1-0 lead. The Dodgers tied it in the 4th, the Mets went ahead 3- 1 on hits by Knight and Teufel, then Marshall homered off Sid in the 5th to make it 3-2 Mets. It stayed that way until the bottom of the 7th when Keith Hernandez doubled home two runs to make it 5-2. The Dodgers had the tying run up with two outs in the ninth but Jesse Orosco came in to get Mike Scioscia to ground out to end the game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
