You've heard of games ending on a walk-off? Well, this game ended on a BALK-OFF!!!

Doc fell behind Fernando early, 3-0, with Mike Davis driving in two early runs. But the Mets came back to tie it with one in the fifth on an RBI single by Barry Lyons, and two more scoring in the seventh on a Gregg Jefferies pinch-hit double.

Rick Aguilera and Randy Myers combined for five innings of shutout relief while Dodger relievers Tim Crews, Jay Howell, and former Met Ray Searage did the same.

Roger McDowell came in to pitch the bottom of the twelfth, and he started it off by walking Dave Anderson. Willie Randolph followed with a single and after an error the Dodgers had runners at second and third. While pitching to John Shelby, McDowell balked and the Dodgers scored the winning run.

According to's Jayson Stark, a game has ended on a balk only three times in the last 30 years.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
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!
