Does anyone remember this game? This was some game even though the Mets lost. I was 8 years old at the time. I remember it was a Sunday afternoon game in L.A., so a 4pm start. The game went 16 innings and I remember I kept wishing as each extra inning passed that it would go longer and longer. Well, I got my wish because the game must have ended like 9 or 10 pm that night. The score was 2-2 in the bottom of the 16th and I believe there were 2 outs and the Dodgers had a runner on 2nd. A routine groundball gets hit to Howard Johnson and I am like "Yes! we are gonna play more!" And he throws the ball away at first, I was so pissed. Then I had to go to sleep because there was school the next day. Man, this game was one for the ages even though the Mets lost. I will always remember this game.

To follow up on Chris C.'s post from April 2002, the Mets were behind 2-0 in this game, but Barry Lyons drove in a run in the seventh and another in the ninth to tie it up.

David Cone and Bob Welch both pitched well as starters, and the two bullpens were terrific. Both teams wasted based loaded and one out oppotunities in extra innings. Finally with one out in the sixteenth, Danny Heep scored on a Mike Devereau infield single plus an error by Howard Johnson.

Tim Belcher was the winning pitcher in his first major league appearance. It was also the first major league game for Gregg Jefferies, who fouled out as a pinch hitter in the fourteenth inning.

The Cardinals won their game so the Mets fell 3.5 games out of first place.

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.
