I went to this game but it's been a while so there's only one thing I can remember about it. It was a close game but the Padres had the lead (3-2, I believe) in the bottom of the ninth and things were looking bleak for the Mets but Mike Piazza stepped up against Trevor Hoffman and blasted one in to right and he jumped up and down and was mobbed at home plate by his teammates. It was incredible game!

The two-run homer by Piazza brought the Mets back to win after Armando Benitez had blown a 2-1 lead by giving up two runs in the top of the eighth.

This game marked the first loss for the Padres in a game they led after eight innings since July of 1996!! The Padres had won 181 straight games where they had taken the lead into the ninth inning.

It seemed like the Mets were sleepwalking through this one, stranding 12 runners and Benitez blowing a 2-1 lead. Then all of the sudden Piazza *POW* in the bottom of the 9th sends a blast over the right field fence and electrifies the stadium. I remember walking down the ramps at Shea listening to chants of "Let's Go Mets" from the departing crowd. An amazing finish and a testament to Piazza's ability to change momentum with one swing of the bat.

I remember watching this game on TV, and it was the first thing that came to mind when I heard about Trevor Hoffman's retirement last night.

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!
