METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 25, 1965 GAME:

Bob P
April 28, 2006
In the first game of a Sunday doubleheader at Candlestick Park, Juan Marichal ran his record against the Mets to 11-0 with a five-hit shutout. Marichal struck out nine, and the Mets got just three runners as far as second base in the game.

It was Marichal's second shutout against the Mets in nine days, and he would shut them out twice more in 1965.

At this point, Marichal had pitched 101.1 innings against the Mets and had allowed just twelve earned runs.

In the game the Giants jumped on Al Jackson early. Willie McCovey hit a two run homer in the first, Hal Lanier had a two-run triple in the second, and Jose Pagan had an RBI double in the third. Jackson lost for the third time in three starts. But after winning game two of the doubleheader, the Mets were 6-7 and ended the day half a game ahead of the 5-7 Giants.

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.

Thank you!
