This Sunday afternoon game was played on a day that Mike Tyson celebrated his 25th birthday. Doc got shelled early-possibly riding a hangover resulting from a long New York City Saturday summer night-but who knew at the time. With the Mets loss in this one I suffered my largest defecit ever to the "boys" as I had dropped 2 dimes on Doc with the hope of breaking even (was down a grand and they were laying 2-1). The Metties battled back from the wrong side of a 9-2 score and scored twice amid a ferocious rally in the bottom of the ninth. With the bases loaded the always selective Dave Magadan stepped to the plate from the left side. On a 3-2 pitch he took an inside pitch for strike 3 and the game was over. Ouch babe!!

Dave Magadan actually led off the bottom of the ninth by grounding out. Kevin McReynolds followed with a double and Howard Johnson homered to make it 10-9. Hubie Brooks walked to put the tying run on but Rick Cerone lined out and Mark Carreon struck out for the final out of the game.

The teams combined for 27 hits, and Doc gave up three home runs in 4.1 innings, including the only homers of the 1991 season by Steve Lake and Sil Campusano. It was also the last homer of Campusano's career. The Phillies sent him down about a week later and he never played in the majors again.

A very odd boxscore, seeing Wally Backman leading off and playing third base for the Phils, Roger McDowell pitching in relief for the Phils (he had to leave the game with a pulled side muscle), and Tommy Herr, Rick Cerone, and Garry Templeton playing for the Mets.

I just found a program and scorecard of this game while cleaning stuff out of my former room in my parents house, so I apparently was at this game but I don't have any memory of it as I was 11 years old at the time. According to the scorecard it also appears I left during the 8th inning.

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.
