This was a fun game. I was sitting in the Mezzanine behind home plate, with a group of fans who had all come together. I bought my ticket from one of them outside the stadium as they had an extra.

In the 7th inning, they all left, except for one of them, who stuck it out. The Mets were down 4-1 to Milwaukee at the time. I turned to them and said, "Oh, ye of little faith." The one remaining fan laughed his ass off.

Sure enough, Derek Bell blasted a HR to lead off the last of the 7th, a couple of hits and a Jeromy Burnitz throwing error later the game was tied.

Melvin Mora came into the game late and ended up nailing a 10th inning HR off Curt Leskanic to win the game. I remember him hitting it off the camera bay in deep CF and getting pounded by Derek Bell once he reached home plate. It was Mora's first Regular Season ML Home Run.

Walking out, fans in the ramps were chanting "MEL-VIN MO-RA!!!!!" over and over.

Great, early season comeback win. You had a feeling at this game that this year was going to be special.

Everyone seems to remember Melvin as a SS, but he came into to play CF in this game before hitting the walk-off homer. As noted in the prior post, it was his first regular season MLB homer ever. He had, however hit a homer in the 1999 NLCS in Game 2 after he came into that game to play LF.

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.
