METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 18, 1987 GAME:Robert Mitchell

Tommy Herr won it for the Cardinals in the bottom of the 9th with a walk-off grand slam. The Mets had led this game 5-0 at one time, but blew it. I think at that moment I began to realize 1987 was not going to be like 1986.

You got that right! They blew a 5 run lead as well as one run leads in the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings - the Herr grand slam just put them out of their misery that night. This was the first of what was to be many nights like this in 1987 - climaxed by the infamous "Terry Pendleton game".

As a Cardinals fan, I attended this game and sat in the right field bleachers that night. It was (by far) the most exciting game I ever attended at Busch Stadium. For the small-ball, low-scoring Cards to come back three times in a single game was nearly unheard of. And to close the game with a walk-off grand slam was icing on the cake. That night also happened to be "Seat Cushion Night" at the ballpark, and the fans rained down seat cushions onto the field with each comeback (prompting numerous delays). Busch Stadium has not had another seat cushion promotion since that night. I am probably one of only a few fans who still possesses his coveted seat cushion from that fateful night.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
