METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 14, 2000 GAME:Eliyahu Barninka
August 23, 2006
My first game. My brother and I went with my uncle and his wife, BIG Giants fans. We came in plenty of time to watch the Asian Night festivities. Rick Reed sailed through the first five innings, then blew up to the tune of a five run sixth. Dennis Cook followed during the seventh, and gave up six runs in a third of an inning! Russ Ortiz shut the Met bats down, despite walking six. Basically, the only bright spot was an eigth inning Jay Payton home run that barely cleared the fence. An embarrassment for the eventually NL Champions, but a great time nonetheless.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
