Rookie OF Alex Ochoa had five hits in this game and hit for the cycle. He had two doubles among the five hits.

Ochoa was the only Met to get five hits in a game in 1996. The next time a Met had five hits in a game was more than three years later--in August of 1999--when Edgardo Alfonso had six hits (including three homers) against the Astros.

I remember watching this game and being pissed off when Huskey was removed from the game late needing only a double for the cycle--especially when hios turn came up one more time in the game! I have never bothered to confirm it, but I am guessing no team has ever had two guys hit for the cycle in one game.

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!
