The Yankees won the rubber game of the first "Subway Series" thanks to a tenth inning RBI single by Tino Martinez off John Franco.

Solo homers by Chad Curtis and Cecil Fielder had given the David Cone and the Yanks an early 2-0 lead. The Mets had no hits until John Olerud's seventh inning leadoff double.

Coney wound up with a no decision after pitching eight innings and allowing two runs and two hits. He walked two and struck out eleven.

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!
