This was a very exciting game in which Kevin McReynolds hit the game winning home run. I was excited that Jeff Innis got his first major league win this day!

I remember being at this game on Beach Towel day, which came in handy when there was a fairly lengthy rain delay early on. It was a 3:20 start on a nationally televised Saturday afternoon game. The Mets led 3-0 and Darling had a 1-hitter going into the 8th. But he fell apart, and the Cubs eventually took a 4-3 lead off of Myers in the 9th. But the Mets tied it on a Goose Gossage wild pitch in the last of the 9th.
My mother got fed up and, despite my protests, took me home after the 10th inning. Which is when the game started to get really interesting. Carter ended up playing 3B, the Cubs took a lead in the top of the 11th, only to see the Mets tie it, and then McReynolds hit the winning HR in the 13th.
I remember being on the subway and hearing a number of fans listening on the radio and cheering when the ball went out. Wish my mother would have stuck it out. She was never much for those long, cold afternoons at Shea.

One of two games in which Gary Carter played at 3B for the Mets and they won both in extra innings. The other game was the infamous 1986 game against the Reds when the Mets had to have Jesse Orosco and Roger McDowell play the outfield. Carter also played at 3B once for the Expos.
