METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 14, 1991 GAME:Educated Fan
November 24, 2006
This was an extremely hard loss for the Mets. They had already lost 5 in a row, and it looked like they would end that streak today.
They had a 4-2 lead in the top of the 8th, and a chance to put the game away with the bases loaded, nobody out. But they couldn't score a single run. In the bottom of the 8th, the Cardinals scored 3 runs, and held on to beat the Mets 5-4. The pitcher that got the Mets out in the 8th was coincidentally named Cris Carpenter, not the same guy as the Cardinals' current star pitcher.
This one really hurt. After this, they would lose 5 more in a row for an 11-game losing streak.
I think this was one of the most devastating losses ever for the Mets. While there was no longer any hope of them making the playoffs, now they couldn't even win a game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
