The Mets scored in the first but after that combined on a series of fielding errors and walks to lose to the Cubs, Chicago scoring seven runs even though they had only three base hits. I still remember the headline in a local sports page the next day: "Cubs Three Hit Attack Sinks Mets 7-1".

This was the sixth straight loss for the Mets on their way to eleven in a row. As Joseph Dubin said in an earlier post, the Cubs scored seven runs with just three hits!

The weirdness started in the first inning as Cubs starter Bill Faul was hit with a shot off the bat of Mets leadoff batter Johnny Lewis. Cal Koonce came in to relieve Faul and held the Mets to one run in 3.2 innings (an RBI single by Ron Hunt) before veteran LHP Billy Hoeft pitched five shutout innings for the win.

The Cubs scored four in the top of the fifth with just two hits. Glenn Backert led off with a single, and after a fielder's choice and error by Galen Cisco, the Cubs had runners at second and third with no one out. Pinch hitter Doug Clemens reached on an error by Ed Kranepool then an infield out gave the Cubs a 2-1 lead. After a walk, Billy Williams doubled in tow more runs and it was 4-1 Cubs.

In the seventh, Gordie Richardson walked a batter then hit a batter, and Billy Williams followed with a three run homer, giving him two of the Cubs' three hits and five RBI for the afternoon.

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!
