METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 29, 1988 GAME:
March 6, 2002
A horrible rainy day turned into a one-hitter by David Cone. I believe the Padres got a 3rd inning double by Tony Gwynn past a diving Keith Hernandez. Gregg Jeffries hits his first major league homer.

Brian, Tony Gwynn's double came with one out in the fourth inning for the only hit off Coney. He walked two batters and struck out eight while improving to 14-3.
In addition to his first HR, Jefferies also doubled and tripled in the game.
Len Dykstra was ejected in the second inning by home plate umpire Jim Quick after Dykstra was caught looking.

This was my first ever baseball game. I was six years old, and my father took me with my brothers. I've been a diehard Mets fan ever since. I remember being so excited at being there for Gregg Jefferies first career HR. Of course, he didn't turn into the superstar everyone thought he would be.

I was also at this game and, if I recall correctly, Mookie struck out to end the game and was booed because Gregg was on deck and everyone was hoping to see him hit for the cycle.
One of four one hitters I've been at (Matlack '74, Seaver '76 and Seo/Weathers/Benitiez '03).

This would be a GREAT game for SNY to pull out of the vault if they have it.
Cone threw a masterful one hitter... Jefferies hits his first homer (a HUGE deal at the time obviously) and the Mets begin to close out the last stretch of the season in fantastic fashion, leading to a great and fun September.
