METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 26, 1990 GAME:Educated Fan
October 21, 2007
This game showed that the Mets were back to their old mental errors. In the bottom of the 3rd, when Mike Sharperson stole second, Todd Hundley failed to look Jose Gonzalez back to third base when he threw to second, and he stole home.
In the 7th, with the bases loaded, Kevin McReynolds hits a blooper that is just fair in right field. It looks like 2 runs will score easily. But Gregg Jeffries was tagging from second, and can only get to third. He should have at least played halfway with 1 out. The Mets cannot score again that inning, or for the rest of the game.
They lose 3 out of 4, their worst series in LA since 1981.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
