METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 14, 1993 GAME:
April 23, 2003
In this game Tim Bogar hit two homers, one over the fence and one inside the park. It was the only two-homer game of Tim's Met career, and the only four-hit game of his Met career. He also had two doubles in the game and wound up driving in four runs and scoring four.
The starter and winner in the game was Bobby Jones, who was making his major league debut. Jones allowed 5 runs and 7 hits in six innings, but just one of the runs was earned.
(Note: sarcasm ahead) The victory improved the Mets record to 40-76 and brought them within 33.5 games of the first place (and eventual World Series losing) Phils.

Bob is right on the money on his accounts of this game. This was my first away Mets game. lt felt weird rooting for the Mets in someone else's house, especially in '93 when the Mets REALLY REALLY sucked. 0ne of the few bright spots for that game was seeing Bobby Jones' major league debut and seeing Tim Bogar hit an inside the parker. He broke his hand sliding in to home on that play and ended his impressive rookie season. Literally another bad break in that horrendous season.

According to the game log, this is the last game that Tim played in 1993 for the Mets but he was back on the team in 1994. Did he get hurt or something else happen?
