Funny-looking box score for this game. How in the world did the Mets get 13 hits and 2 walks in less than 5 innings and only manage to score 3 runs?? That's hard to do.

Steve G, good question! Retrosheet tells us how:

First inning: Mets score two but also have a runner (Hernandez) thrown out trying to score from second on a single. Then they leave the bases loaded. Second inning: two more left on base. Third inning: one left on base. Fourth inning: two more left on. Fifth inning: another runner (Hearn) thrown out trying to score, plus two more left on base.

This was a wild game that the Mets held on to win, and after sweeping this doubleheader the Mets had a 21 game lead with 26 games remaining.

One more note: Dave Magadan made his major league debut in this game with a pinch-single in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Example One
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!
