METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 19, 1988 GAME:Stu Baron
February 28, 2002
I belong to an a capella singing group, The Metrognomes, and we sang the national anthem before this game; this would be a huge thrill for any Mets fan. David Cone went on to toss 7 2/3 perfect innings before yielding an infield hit on a slow roller up the 3B line.

Just an addendum to Stu's earlier note on this game: Cone had a no-hitter for 7.2 innings, but it was not a perfect game. He walked Steve Jeltz in the third inning, and he hit Phil Bradley with a pitch in the top of the eighth. Two batters later, Jeltz broke up the no-hitter with a clean single to center.
Milt Thompson then singled with one out in the ninth to turn the one-hitter into a two-hitter. Coney struck out seven and improved to 8-1.
