The Mets' heroics in this game--Ventura's first of two Grand Slams in the DH off Jim Abbott in the 1st, and Benny Agbayani's 4 hits and 2 HRs, were long forgotten as this game came to a harrowing ending. And what an ending it was.

The Mets had, at one point, led 11-6, in what had been a real seesaw of a game. The Brewers trimmed it to 11-9 with Franco on, 2 outs, Grissom on 2nd and Ochoa on 1st. Sean Berry was up.

Berry hit a lazy popup to shallow right. The runners were motoring around as Alfonzo ranged back and looked in position to make an easy catch to end the game.

Except that Fonzie dropped it. Grissom scored and Ochoa continued to steam around the bases with the tying run.

Fortunately, Roger Cedeno (when he was awake) was alert enough to pick up the ball and fire it home, well in time to nail a surprised Ochoa, who didn't bother to slide, to save Fonzie and the game altogether.

The second game did not quite hold that same drama.

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!
