METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 8, 1965 GAME:

After losing game one of this doublehader at Shea, 7-6, the Mets take a lead into the ninth inning of game two. But the Cubs score six runs in the top of the ninth inning to win the game, 14-10, and sweep the four game series. Cubs catcher Chris Krug strikes out twice in that ninth inning.

It's the eighth straight loss for the Mets on their way to eleven straight (their longest streak of the year), and drops their record to 34- 78.

Recently released by the Mets, Warren Spahn wins his 361st victory and first as a Giant. San Francisco beats the Cards 64 ... In New York, the Cubs score six runs in the 9th inning to whip the Mets, 1410. Chris Krug is not much help in the 9th, as the Cubbie strikes out twice. It's the first time since 1922 a Cub has K'ed twice in one inning.

I think that this was a banner day doubleheader. If I am correct, the famous " Don't Get Sore, The Mets And I Are Only Four" banner was paraded around the diamond between games and made the '66 yearbook!

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.
