I remember this game well. My sophomore year of high school was coming near its end. It was a humid night. It was me, my cousin Dan, my uncle Dave, and my dad. Who would have known that a tight game like this would be the start of an eight-game skid? Rick Reed pitched a good seven innings. Too bad it went to waste.

The two keys in this game were Mike Piazza tumbling and not scoring in the ninth, and then the debated 3-2 pitch to Luis Lopez that was called a strike to end the game with the bases loaded.

On the way home, we were talking away about the sudden change in atmosphere among the fans when that 3-2 pitch was called strike three on Luis Lopez. It went from major excitment to major frustration with a few obscenities. Benny Agabyani hit one of what were many home runs at the time. Mets lost 2-1, the first of an eight-game losing streak.

Got seats from a co-worker of my father's: a mezzanine season ticket which was the only time I didn't sit in the upper deck at Shea.

Omar Daal outdueled Rick Reed and Benny Agbayani continued his seemingly unfettered march to Cooperstown (at least to my eight-year old self) with another home run.

I actually left the game early with my father, but I do remember the two keys Anthony described listening to the game on WFAN on the way home.

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!
