METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 6, 1986 GAME:

I lived in the Midwest in 1986 and was at this game. I remember Mookie Wilson won it late with a broken-bat single to right field that drove in the winning run. Doc Gooden was sailing along and appeared to have the game wrapped, but he gave up a late homer to Cubs right fielder Keith Moreland. I was sitting in the left field stands as the ball went onto Waveland Avenue and hit some buses.

The start of this doubleheader was delayed almost an hour by rain. Doc and the Mets fell behind early, 3-1, but then they scored three in the fifth to take the lead. They added another run and Doc was breezing along after the rough start.

But in the ninth inning with one out, Thad Bosley singled and then Jody Davis (not Keith Moreland as stated in an earlier post) homered to tie the game.

Mookie Wilson drove in two with a single in the twelfth to give the Mets the lead again, but Roger McDowell almost gave it back. With one out in the bottom of the twelfth he gave up a double and an RBI single but then retired Ryne Sandberg and Manny Trillo for the win.

The Mets had 15 hits in the game, including four by Len Dykstra.

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.

Thank you!
