METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 3, 1996 GAME:Bob P

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.
