Was at this game, and thought it odd that Ventura was coming up in the last of the 4th with the bases loaded. After all, in the first game of this DH, he had slammed a grand slam in the first game, which keyed the Mets to a win. I remember thinking "Wouldn't it be neat if he did that again?" Robin worked the count to 3-2 against Brewers P Horacio Estrada, and then, with one mighty swing, he matched his feat of the first game, and smacked his second grand slam of the DH. Little do I know at the time how historic this grand slam actually was. Later that night, as I watched Sportscenter, I found out that Robin was the first player to do such a thing. Again, I thought, "Neat! I saw history." Robin's bat is now in Cooperstown, a flukish event that ended up being a part of Baseball lore.

More history for the Mets- Robin Ventura, in the first game of this doubleheader, hit a grand slam, but what are the chances of him coming up again (this time in the second game) with the bases loaded? Well, of course, it was Mike Piazza's day off so someone had to steal the spotlight and, in the fourth inning, Ventura stepped up and hit one into the corner that made it over for a grand slam, becoming the first player to slug a grand slam in both games of a doubleheader. It was especially interesting because Robin Ventura was among the leaders of all-time for grand slams and had already had two grand slams in a game before. These were his 13th and 14th slams of his career and it was absolutely incredible to watch him do that live on TV.

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.
