METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 30, 1994 GAME:
April 14, 2003
This game was tough to swallow. The Mets built 5- 0 and 10-5 leads, but in the 8th inning, Josias Manzanillo gave up 3 home runs. The first was a 2-run homer to Chris Gwynn. The second was a 3- run homer to Mike Piazza, and then Tim Wallach hit a solo homer to win it.

Stephen, you're right. The most amazing thing was that there were two outs when all those homers were hit. Gwynn's was a pinch home run, the next two batters (Butler and Webster) got on base before Piazza hit one, then Wallach followed.
Piazza had 92 RBI in just 107 games that season!
Bobby Bonilla was 4-for-4 with three singles and a homer.

Mets build a big early lead on homers by Bonilla and Kent. If I recall correctly Bonilla even made a good stop at third. It all falls apart late. Manzanillo gives up three homers none of them cheap. Dodgers score 6 in the 8th and another in the 9 for good meaure. Another grey day at Shea.

I must of been about 8 years old when I went to this game. I remember they went around to the crowd and asked them who the best baseball player of all time was. Me being 8 and knowing nothing, I proudly said Jeremy Burnitz, who hit a home run the very next inning.
