Wow, this was actually my first ever Mets game that I had ever been to. Hard to believe that its been 14 years since that doubleheader at Three Rivers, but I am still a hardcore Mets fan till this day. I don't remember much about the games themselves, but I just remember being so thrilled that the Mets swept the doubleheader!!!

TCOR, you've come to the right place! Here's what happened in game one of the doubleheader:

Frank Viola pitched a seven-hitter, allowing two unearned runs, and the Mets came from a 2-0 deficit to win, 6-2. Kevin McReynolds opened the Mets scoring with his 21st homer, then Gregg Jefferies hit his 12th to tie it in the 5th. The Mets took the lead on an RBI groundout by HoJo. Another infield out scored run number four, and RBI singles by Dave Magadan and Juan Samuel in the 9th put it away. As for game two...please see my comments in that listing!

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!
