This was Tom Parsons' shining moment in his major league career: his final major league win (he only had two), his second complete game, and his only shutout.

The Mets swept this doubleheader at Shea and in game two Parsons allowed six hits as the tenth place Mets gained ground on the ninth place Cubs. Ron Swoboada hit a two-run homer in the second and Jim Hickman drew a bases-loaded walk in the fourth for the only other Mets run.

Unfortunately, after this sweep the Mets went on a ten game losing streak.

Parsons finished the year 1-10 for New York but was a part of their long term success in that he was traded to Houston after the 1965 season in exchange for Jerry Grote.

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!
