This game was cover-your-eyes ugly: the Mets made seven errors and allowed seven unearned runs in a loss to the Pirates, who were eleven games under .500.

The Mets were behind, 5-0 going to the bottom of the fifth but then scored six to take a 6-5 lead after five innings. But the Pirates scored eight runs (six unearned) over the last three innings for the win.

Tood Hundley had a single and his 31st home run, and drove in five runs.

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!
