October 25, 2002
In this game the Mets set a team record for most runs scored, and they did a lot of the damage against Greg Maddux, who would not become a superstar until the following year.

A pretty good day for the Mets bats as they closed to within four and a half games of the Cardinals.
The Mets scored 3 in the first with only one hit. They also had 4 walks and a sac fly off Greg Maddux, who finished the season with a 6-14 record and has not had a losing season since. The Mets added 1 more in the third and 3 more in the fourth on a 3-run HR by Strawberry that got Maddux out of the game. The Cubs scored 5 in the bottom of the fourth thanks mainly to a Jody Davis grand slam, but the Mets came back with 3 in the fifth and 7 more in the sixth, all 10 of those runs off rookie LHP Drew Hall. Dykstra and HoJo homered later in the game.
