Don Aase. He gave up a three-run homer to Willie Randolph in the top of the ninth with the Mets ahead 3- 2. It was Randolph's only home run the whole year! The Mets went into a tailspin after that and couldn't catch the Cubs. It was also Ramon Martinez's rookie season (he started the game) and he did a decent job.

One of my top 10 worst regular season losses. Willie Randolph taking Don Aase deep to the opposite field...I still have nightmares about it. Aase will always live in infamy for that home run.

I didn't attend this game, but watched it on TV...Future manager (but for how long?) Willie Randolph came on Kiner's Korner to talk about his 9th-inning homer that won it for the Dodgers, and said, "Sorry, Met fans..."
For some reason, I'll never forget that...
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
