METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 5, 1992 GAME:Randy Scouse Git
June 16, 2009
This game had the most disgusting ending! The Mets were ahead by a run in the ninth when Eddie Murray (among the all-time leaders in grand slams) came up with the bases loaded and one out. Eddie asked umpire Terry Tata to move over a few feet. The stubborn Tata refused. After an argument, Tata ejected Murray, depriving him of his chance to do some damage. Macker Sasser had to pinch hit and grounded into a double play. The Reds then scored two in the bottom of the ninth to win.
Even though they weren't in pennant contention, the Mets were very upset about losing this game. They had every right to be. They had their big chance to increase their lead taken away just because Terry Tata wouldn't move his big, fat butt!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
