METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 15, 1994 GAME:Bob P
August 20, 2004
Terrific outing for Bret Saberhagen, who started game two of this twi-night doubleheader. Saberhagen pitched ten innings and allowed just five hits, no runs, and no walks! Unfortunately the Mets couldn't score in those ten innings because Andy Benes may have had a better outing than Saberhagen: he pitched eight innings and allowed just two hits while striking out fourteen.
John Franco and Roger Mason kept the Padres off the board for three more innings, then Mike Maddux came in to pitch the fourteenth. After retiring Scott Livingstone, Maddux allowed back- to-back home runs by Tony Gwynn and Phil Plantier, giving the Padres a 2-0 lead. The Mets got an unearned run off Jeff Tabaka in the bottom of the inning but Tim Mauser came on to get the last two outs for the first save of his career.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
