This game was a true indicator of how this frustrating season would go.

The Mets had a 4-0 lead going to the bottom of the eighth at the Vet and Ron Darling had not allowed a hit through seven innings. But Greg Gross led off with a triple followed by a single by Juan Samuel, and by the time the Phillies were retired it was 4-3 Mets and Darling was out of the game.

In the ninth with one out, Roger McDowell gave up three straight singles to tie the game and then with two outs, Mike Schmidt singled in the winning run and the Mets lost 5-4.

The loss dropped the Mets to 39-34 and they trailed the first place Cardinals by 6.5 games.

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!
