Who could forget this lopsided game? Derek Bell pitches and the crowd is laughing hysterically. It was comical because they came back and won the next game so who cares?

Derek Bell was sweet, he threw gas! There were about 100 people left in Qualcomm who actually witnessed Bell's mastery on the hill. This was before he went into "operation shutdown" with the Pirates.

The ironic thing about Bell pitching this night is that meanwhile in Colorado, former Met Brent Mayne, a catcher, ended up pitching and beating the Braves in extra-innings when the Rockies ran out of pitchers. As a result, the Mets did not lose any ground on the Braves. And Mayne starting his inning on the mound by getting future Met Tom Glavine to ground out - and Glavine was pinch-hitting because the Braves had run out of non-pitchers to pinch hit.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
