The Mets were down, 8-5, going to the top of the ninth at the Astrodome. Luckily, Dave Smith came on to pitch for Houston.

The Mets loaded the bases with one out, and then Tim Teufel hit a line drive that cleared the fence in left center for an apparent grand slam to put the Mets ahead. However, it struck the concrete outer wall and came back on the field. The umpires incorrectly ruled it a three-run double, which tied the game and sent it into extra innings.

The Mets wound up winning in the tenth on a single by Kevin McReynolds. Doc Gooden and Mike Scott combined to give up twelve runs in this game!

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!
