The Mets swept this holiday weekend doubleheader at Shea, winning game one by the score of 3-2. Warren Spahn made his second-to-last appearance for the Mets and pitched four innings. Larry Bearnarth pitched five innings of one-hit relief for his third and final win of the 1965 season.

The Mets scored three runs in the first. Billy Cowan and Roy McMillan both singled, then with one out Ron Swoboda hit his fourteenth home run of the season. Jim Hickman followed with a single. But the most memorable thing about this game was that after Hickman's single, Cubs' pitchers Dick Ellsworth and Lindy McDaniel retired the last 26 batters they faced!

Another amazing coincidence---this was the last time the Mets had all their hits in the first inning of a game they won until 41 years to the day later, when they pulled off the same feat against Pittsburgh.

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!
