March 4, 2004
Nice win for the Mets on a Saturday afternoon at Shea. The Mets fell behind early, 2-0, then tied it at 2-2. The the Giants scored two in the fifth on a Will Clark homer and it looked like that would be the difference.
But in the bottom of the ninth Bud Harrelson sent Mackey Sasser up to lead off, pinch-hitting for Charlie O'Brien. Sasser homered to make it 4-3, and then Mark Carreon, batting for Alejandro Pena, homered to tie the score. It was the first case of back-to-back pinch-homers in the NL since 1975.
Howard Johnson's two-run homer in the bottom of the twelfth won the game. Rookie Pete Schourek picked up the win as the Mets improved to 14-9.
