This was second game of a twi-night double header. Remember those? This was a loooong night! The first game was a close affair Mets pulled it out but dropped the second, my girl was tired but hung in there til the end of a 13 ininng game #2. We had to park in one of the grass "lots" and not our usual spot behind left field lot. When we came out to the car it had been hit with a baseball bat as had some others and one guy's car was stolen. We had to go back into the bowels of Shea and make a police report. Which was pretty cool. I remember wanting to walk around and look for some Tommie Agee heirlooms. My wife has never let me forget that night; it was her new Red 1988 Ford Tempo with a huge dent becuse of the METS 6 hour plus double header.

I remember feeling bad for Gene Walter in this game.
In the 13th, with Billy Hatcher on first, he alertly threw to first while Hatcher was stealing, and had him picked off. But Keith Hernandez dropped the easy throw, and Hatcher made second easily. Unfortunately, by rule, Hatcher just got a stolen base. There was no error, Gene Walter got an earned run, and took the loss after Hatcher scored on a single.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
